TALENTED Georgia Lennon continues to go from strength to strength in the world of entertainment.
The 13-year-old from Hartlepool has been a rising star for years and is proof that hard work and determination pays dividends.
Proud mum Nicola, 43, outlined her latest successes. She said: “Georgia has been singing at the Birmingham Conservatoire with the Quay Lasses, which is the choir she’s part of from The Sage, Gateshead.
“She won Musician of the Festival at the Hartlepool Music and Arts Festival Final on Saturday and last Friday found out that she had successfully auditioned for a place in Quay Voices - regarded as one of the top youth choirs in the UK. Among other things they will visit Banff, Alberta, Canada on an International Residential and sing with the National Youth Choir of Venezuela at The Sage.”
She said there was “lots to look forward to” but Georgia’s achievements do not end there. She will also be rehearsing with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain for a week in August.
After that, said Nicola, they have been invited to perform at the Association of British Choral Directors annual convention. The Gala concert will take place at the historic Sheldonian Theatre at Oxford University.
She said the occasion would be “a fantastic opportunity” for her daughter.
