The 2011 winner of the Music Makers Trophy is Bethany Peace, an eighteen year old who is studying Music to A Level at Bilborough College. When Beth leaves college this year she intends to study Marine Biology at university. In addition to her college life Beth is a member of the renowned Cantamus Girls’ Choir, which under the expert direction of Pamela Cook has won so many awards around the world. Beth is currently working towards her Grade 8 Singing qualification and is determined to make sure that music remains an important part of her life, perhaps even considering a musical career further down the line. Beth says that she thoroughly enjoys performing and feels honoured to receive the Music Makers award. She hopes to use the experience of singing for us this evening to further develop her confidence on stage. For its part, the choir congratulates Bethany on her success, looks forward to singing with her and of course offers very best wishes for the future.
