To kick off this update, we are excited to announce that DTA's junior choir had an unforgettable experience filming at the enchanting Otterburn Castle in Northumberland. But that's not all - they had the incredible opportunity to perform alongside the renowned Alfie Boe and Carly Paoli for a Christmas special! It was an honour for our talented performers to share the stage with such esteemed artists, and former student, showcasing their abilities in a truly magical setting.
