In October 2015 Everybody Can! Opera had their inaugural performance of Verdi’s opera Otello. It was produced by Nadine Benjamin, conducted by William Conway, directed by Rebecca Louise Dale and project managed by Rita Grudzien.

Having been much loved and cared for by my many mentors over the last few years years, I began to think that even though I had not yet reached the pinnacle of my singing career, I have something to offer others. I therefore started a mentor programme called ‘Everybody Can!’
Warwick Thompson recently met me in London and published the following piece, Covering my journey from Brixton school, to working in the City to now following my passion in singing Opera.
