Ms Doan

Celebrating Alumni students

It's always so lovely to hear from alumni students and what they are up to, whether they have gone on  to study Music or not. It has been a delight to follow Emma Doherty's progress at Manchester University and we are not surprised to hear that she has become fully involved in the university music scene.  As well as being in demand as a singer (surprise, surprise), Emma is this year's director of Manchester University Music Society's opera, Castor and Pollox by Rameau.  Watch the video below for a bit of a flavour behind the scenes.  It's fantastic to see Emma combining her music, drama and literary skills in this role.
Good luck for the run!
