Shereece Storrod

Shereece Storrod, Artistic Director of Town Hall Symphony Hall's Associate Artists Black Voices, is making history as a recipient of an RSL Awards Fellowship.

The presentation of the RSL Fellowship Award will take place at Grosvenor Road Studios on Thursday 10 December. The award will be presented by the Founder of Rock School, Norton Yorke, who has followed and supported Shereece’s musical career for over 20 years.

Grosvenor Road Studios is the oldest recording studios in Birmingham and is the home of Black Voices. Given the historic line and pedigree of world musicians that have recorded at the Studios including Jimmy Cliff, John Bonham and Jeff Lynne, it is a fitting venue for Shereece to receive her award.

We are thrilled to be awarding an Honorary Fellowship to Shereece Storrod for the exceptional work she is doing with Black Voices, and as the first female recipient, this feels incredibly special!

I'm completely overwhelmed and immensely blessed to receive this RSL fellowship award. Rock School played an important role in my early musical development, it's an amazing feeling to know that lil old Shereece from Birmingham is being acknowledged and that rock school is still going 30 years strong.

Last year saw over 350 Community Spirit singers entertaining an audience of more than 1,100 people in a large-scale concert in Symphony Hall.
