A soprano from Norfolk has been awarded a fellowship at the Royal College of Music by HRH The Prince of Wales.
Elizabeth Watts, who grew up in Hethersett, was honoured on Tuesday, March 7 by HRH, alongside choral conductor, advisor and ambassador Simon Halsey and Interim General Manager of The Philharmonia, Alistair Mackie.
The talented singer, who was a chorister at Norwich Cathedral, studied at Sheffield University before attending the Royal College of Music (RCM).
Professor Colin Lawson CBE, Director of the RCM, said: 'It is hugely special to be joined by our President to celebrate so many eminent musicians and Royal College of Music supporters, who each make such an enormous contribution to the musical life of this country and beyond.
'It is also wonderful to honour the talents of Royal College of Music students, who we have no doubt will go on to become equally influential, and the teaching staff who do so much to inspire, support and nurture them.'
