Happy birthday to Katharine, Duchess of Kent. Future Talent’s wonderful co-founder is turning 91 today, and to celebrate, we’re announcing a partnership between Future Talent and the National Children’s Choir of Great Britain.

As part of the collaboration, a new award will be available for young singers from low-income backgrounds to participate in NCCGB's two annual residentials during the Easter and Summer holidays.

Alongside this, mentoring, workshops, masterclasses, performance opportunities and financial support will be available to the recipients as part of Future Talent’s programme.
