Singing finalist

Annabel Rocket, a music scholar at Wolverhampton Grammar School, was a recent finalist in the Rotary Young Musician of the Year vocal category. Annabel won the first three stages; local, district and regional. At national level she competed against singers from Scotland and Ireland at the finals in Cardiff. Annie, who is taught singing by Beverley Wightman, has now been asked to sing in two concerts this summer for Compton Hospice, one at the Grand Theatre and she has also secured a place on the Eton summer school choral course in July.
