Rising star soprano Lucy Farrimond delighted the audience at the weekly Toad Lane Concert on Wednesday 5 October with an inspirational recital. The former Chethams’ student is currently studying for a master’s degree at the RNCM as well as winning competitions. ROCHDALE NEWS ONLINE (2022): (2022)

"Now a word of praise for Lucy Farrimond, who came out of the chorus to join the three solo singers in the final chorus... I wish to offer my appreciation to Lucy and to her two hundred colleagues in the magnificent, heavenly chorus for the evening." SEEN AND HEARD INTERNATIONAL (2019): (2019)

Finally, there is already a dizzying choice of Proms to choose from on BBC Sounds, but if you didn’t catch it, hear Haydn’s Creation sung by the fresh voices of the Proms Youth Choir, with Omer Meir Wellber, the BBC Philharmonic and some strong soloists, including the young Lucy Farrimond, who stepped out of the choir to join the principals in their final Amens. Such aplomb. THE GUARDIAN (2019): (2019)

"Of the soloists the laurels surely go to Lord Mountararat (Jordan Harding-Pointon), Iolanthe (Lucy Farrimond), Strephon (Miles Docherty) and Phyllis (Charlotte Kennedy) for the quality of singing throughout." SEEN AND HEARD INTERNATIONAL (2018): (2018)
