The first recipient of support from the Naresh Sohal Sponsorship Programme is Olubenga Olusegun Oyeleye. Olu is a big man with a big bass voice. He enjoys singing in his church choir, but because he works shifts, he has never been able to follow a programme of study to develop his voice. He has been paired with professional opera singer, Marcin Gesler, for tuition. Marcin is also a bass.
