Elaine Shows Her Vocal Class

A SELECT group of talented young people from across the province will be put through their paces today when one of the world's most renowned performers tests their skills.

Elaine Paige, who is often regarded as the First Lady of the West End, will be in Belfast to deliver the Cunningham Coates Stockbrokers Masterclass at the Grand Opera House to students from Music Theatre 4 Youth.

Among the 18 people chosen to take part in the class will be I'd Do Anything finalists Niamh Perry.

The 18-year-old has taken a quick break from her work with Andrew Lloyd Webber to come back to Northern Ireland to attend the class and take up a voluntary position with the charity which has helped her with her career.
