From St Michael & All Angels Church choir to centre stage as a professional opera singer

Milly Forrest hit the headlines in 2017 as the cloakroom girl at the Wigmore Hall who was asked to stand in at short notice for a singer who was ill.

The young soprano from Chiswick has now finished her studies and is embarking on her professional career.

She spoke to The Chiswick Calendar’s editor Bridget Osborne on the eve of the Bedford Park Festival 2018.
