Trio of talented performing arts students

Congratulations to Jasmine Hunt, Oliver Borley and Aimee Eaton on their recent successes in the field of performing arts.

Jasmine has won a scholarship to sing with the prestigious Cambridge Chamber Choir, the Fairhaven Singers. The Fairhaven Singers, under Musical Director Ralph Woodward,  has become one of Cambridge’s leading chamber choirs.  The choir’s diverse repertoire spans eight centuries, and ranges widely in mood and style, from intimate evenings of a cappella music to major choral-orchestral works with world-class soloists. The choir performs at Cambridge University college chapels and further afield, both here and abroad. Jasmine is studying Music, English Literature and History at Long Road, and performs regularly both within and outside the college. She performed Mozart’s Una Donna a Quindici Anni at the college Christmas Concert.

Oliver performed on stage with world-renowned trumpeter Alison Balsom at the Corn Exchange in February. A work by Jay Richardson was specially-commissioned for the ‘Alison Balsom Brass Project’.  This 70-piece work, for beginners to professionals,  featured all the brass instruments used in brass bands and orchestras, with the solo trumpet line played by Alison. Oliver is studying Music, English Literature and PE, and is a member of the college Pit Band. Oliver performed Movement II from Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto at the college Christmas Concert.

Aimee is a dancer and attends classes for three or four hours daily at Bodywork in Cambridge. She took the role of the dancer in Gangsta Granny at the Cambridge Arts Theatre last October, and so impressed everyone that she was asked to rejoin the cast at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire in May. What’s more, she has now been invited to audition for the role when the production moves to the Garrick Theatre in the West End of London this summer. Aimee is taking Musical Theatre, Biology and PE at Long Road.
