Last year one of our Sixth Form music Captains, Katrina Toner, entered the inaugural New London Chamber Choir's Young Composer Competition and won first prize with her composition for voices and piano setting Blake's 'The Little Boy Lost'. As part of her prize Katrina's piece was performed by the choir at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama's fabulous Milton Court concert hall with Katrina and our Music Director Mr Willis in attendance. After the piece Katrina was invited on stage to receive her applause and accept with Mr Willis a cheque for £500 for The Abbey's Music department. Mr Willis tells us that in his opinion Katrina's piece was certainly the best performed on the night! This is an outstanding achievement and the whole community congratulates Katrina on her success.
Katrina is currently supporting music at the Junior School where she is inspiring a new generation of musicians with her talent and passion for music.
