About Isy

New College Worcester student, Isy is an exceptionally talented musician and has a love of all the arts. Isy started playing the piano when she was only 3 years old and singing when she was just 5 years old. She took to music immediately and since then has lived and breathed music. Isy was introduced to the organ at her church school at the age of 7 and has played it ever since. Isy often plays the organ at New College Worcester and has even composed a “Bells Concerto in D Magor” which was a huge hit at the Christmas concert. Currently, Isy is working towards her grade 8 in singing and piano as well as A level Music. Inspired by all music from Flanders and Swann to Julia Donaldson, Isy would love a career in children’s entertainment when she leaves New College Worcester.
