We were thrilled to welcome back OJ and one of the Royal Opera House’s Jette Parker Young Artists, Dominic Sedgwick, to work with our young singers on Thursday 7 February.

Dominic left St John’s School in 2008, having been a member of Churchill House. He went on to study at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, following his time reading Theology at Clare College, Cambridge.

Since leaving St John’s, Dominic has won many prestigious awards and is currently a member of the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme at the Royal Opera House.

Dominic visited St John’s to provide a masterclass for vocal performance pupils from Fifth Form and Sixth Form. With his astounding career as a baritone, the knowledge he provided within the masterclass will be undoubtedly helpful to our talented pupils.

Dominic said of his return: ‘It is great to be back, and so much has changed – I am blown away by the talent of the pupils, some as young as fourteen!’.

We are pleased to hear the fond memories he has of his time at the School, and the strong friendship group of OJs with which he is still regularly in contact with.
