Future Stars

Many of our current students are stars in the making.

SVA students are regularly performing in community musicals, concerts, Eisteddfods and vocal competitions.

SVA students have an incredibly high ‘strike rate’, consistently taking the top three placings in Eisteddfods and many Highly Commended awards, and often win top places in vocal competitions.

Just getting up on a public stage is a very big deal, so whether our students place or not, we are proud of each and every one of them and heartily congratulate them for their effort and commitment. Many of our students regularly perform in community musicals or school productions.

Some pics from recent performances can be seen here featuring many of our star students including: Alex Young, Tilly McMahon, Brandon Koolloos, Issy Harvey, Maeve Cox, Monique Raso, Alexis Pieper, Charlotte Blenkhorn, Summer Moger, Issy Dalliston, Grace Rowland, and Ella Parkinson.
