When the soprano falls ill, this recent graduate working in the cloakroom steps in

We all have to work a less-than-dream job during and just after uni.

It's always a bonus, though, even you get a job related to your degree - even if it isn't perfect.

That's what happened to Millie Forrest, who works at Wigmore Hall in London, which is well-known for its concerts and performances.

She works there to pay for her upcoming Master's at the Royal College of Music, and is a trained soprano.

So, when the soprano singer for a recital of work by Schubert, Purcell and Vaughan Williams at the venue was taken ill, it was her time to shine.

She then performed a solo version of Purcell’s If Music be the Food of Love.

There were 17 other singers in the running for the part, but Millie got it in the nick of time and only had two days to prepare.

Millie told the Evening Standard, 'I couldn’t quite believe I was being asked. I was absolutely terrified. I am just glad my dad wasn’t in the audience, he would have bawling his eyes out.'

She's even been inundated with new singing bookings since the appearance, and although she's trying to stay humble, this will hopefully see her career flourish.

A definite case of right place right time!
