Do-Rei-Mi

Many congratulations to Rei Camilleri, Class of 2022, who had a barnstorming end to their first year at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, winning not one, but two prestigious prizes.

First, Rei (preferred pronouns they/them) won the Molly Robb Prize for Young Singers, with the judge praising their “characterful and engaging rendition, perfect tempo, immaculate intonation and diction and good variation of colours in your voice”.

Then the Principal of the School of Music selected Rei as the recipient of the Winnie Busfield Singing Award, which is granted to the most deserving first year student, for their good voice and musical ability.

Not one to rest of their laurels, Rei spent the summer break first rehearsing and then performing the role of Prince Charming in Bedfordshire Youth Opera's production of Massenet's 'Cinderella’.

Rei, who will be back in Glasgow to start their second year at the end of this month, says: “Choosing the Conservatoire was truly the best option.  I’ve had an amazing year and am looking forward to the next!”

Rei’s Mum, Nikki Camilleri, who is a Physics teacher at LEH, says: “What an incredible series of achievements! We are so proud.”  All of us at LEH are very proud too and wish Rei continued success with their studies.
