In classical music, as in pop and rock, the North East has produced some great voices – Thomas Allen, Owen Brannigan, Sheila Armstrong, Janice Cairns and Graeme Danby among the best known. All could flesh out an operatic character or fill a concert hall with sumptuous sound, soaring above an orchestra without the aid of a microphone. Where – in a region with no professional opera company or music college – are those who will follow in their footsteps? Well, maybe here in a room at Northumbria University on a chilly Saturday in January. “Run and touch every wall and come back and stand next to someone you haven’t spoken to yet,” instructs singing teacher Miranda Wright briskly and with an encouraging smile. Suddenly the young people who have been sitting silently and perhaps a little shyly in an attentive semi-circle spring to life. The ice broken, they are soon panting and smiling – and chatting to potentially newfound friends. This is a taster … [Read more...] about New Northumbria University degree is music to the ears of talented youngsters

Editors USA TODAY Published 11:55 AM EST Dec 22, 2018 In 2018, the eyes of the nation were again fixed on President Donald Trump, whose second year in office was no less remarkable than his first. It was a year that saw the president open up trade wars, meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, spar with the press and defend hush money payments to women he allegedly had affairs with, all while new revelations and indictments poured out of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling. Policies and politics divided us. We found ourselves embroiled in a fierce immigration debate. Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh ascended to the high court despite sexual assault allegations from Christine Blasey Ford. Nature humbled us.

Or high-achieving infantry soldier John Brady: "If it was not for Everton, I am not 100 per cent sure I would be here now. It was that bad ..." And Everton don't draw the curtains on anybody. Derek Goodwin is a Liverpool fan. … [Read more...] about For 30 years of EitC, 30 of its greatest successes
