A Doncaster songstress is hosting a classical concert to raise vital funds to continue her studies.

Kamilla Dunstan, 24, of Scrooby, has hosted a number of charity concerts in the borough but is now asking residents to dig deep support her bid to complete her masters in Glasgow.

Kamilla who is currently in her final year at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London where she is training as a mezzo-soprano.

The talented songstress has accepted a place at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland but will struggle to afford the cost as she does not receive any government funding.

Kamilla, who returns to Doncaster to teach singing at her private music studio every weekend, said: “I have never done a concert for profit purposes as I tend to do charity concerts a lot but in doing all these charity events and student concerts, it is very difficult to raise money for my masters degree and my teaching studio alone doesn’t cover the costs.”

The concert featuring Kamilla and three other singers is on Saturday, July 13, at the Mansion House from 7pm, tickets are £10, including refreshments, and are available on 01302 734309.
