Composer and conductor Ronald Corp has composed many works, including cantatas, a symphony, piano concertos and more than 100 songs. Sarah Pring, a favourite at Glyndebourne, where she began her career, has sung at the Royal Opera House and with companies including English National Opera, Welsh National Opera and Scottish Opera. Andrew Brownell has won prizes at major European competitions and has been soloist with orchestras such as the Hallé, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and the Hermitage State.
