It is such a pleasure for us to introduce another OV performance this Friday. These weekly concerts have become a regular highlight of our week and a huge thanks must go to all the OVs taking part and Director of Music Simon Taranczuk (Hon OV) for such wonderful and diverse performances.
Today’s OV lunchtime recital features Penny Ashmore (Cl 14-16) who has recently graduated with a first class honours degree in acting from Central School of Speech and Drama. Penny played a major role in music and drama at King’s; the highlight for many will have been her performance as Maria in ‘The Sound of Music’ in 2015. A number of OVs will also have witnessed Penny’s poignant performance, singing as a part of an OV cast from Les Misérables, during our 475th Reunion Dinner in Worcester Cathedral in 2017. Once the theatre industry returns to some sense of normality Penny hopes to develop a career as an actor alongside studying for a Master’s Degree in Singing.
