    Any RNCM-ers on here know Dave Lewis, who happens to be on the telly at the moment?

    Just wondered cos I went to school with him and got a bit of a shock when I turned on the TV to see his mug on there!

    Two of the contestants appeared in the chorus for the performance of Bram Tovey's Requiem at the RNCM festival a couple of weeks ago.

    Glad to see them get Max Points on the Music round. Bet that was nerve-racking :eek:

    Well done them!

    There was no Laura on the team, unless one of them was in pre-op!

    There were two singers, Dave who plays percussion (amazingly I might add!), and someone else (surname Butt-Philip?).

    It would put em to shame if they didnt really. But for 4 people doing their Masters in Compositions or something ought to recognise Paganinni!

    bleurgh... singers at rncm are a different breed to everyone else. Not all.. but most are the most self-righteous "up themselves" set of people I have ever met!

    When I was there, one of the male opera students used to walk around in a skirt and high heels :shock:. Oddly, he was one of the more sane.

    Heh, that sounds like Dave. Was he fairly quiet? He was quite the thinker at school. If you see him again say I said Hi!

    Doubt I'll see him again but if I do I'll pass on the message
