Former LTI 5 Student Timmy O Sullivan was recently invited to London to sing at  a charity benefit for the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Timmy fundraised himself to cover costs for the journey, completing a sponsored 5 mile run the week he travelled over.

He travelled to London on August 11th and performed at the benefit. All at CAM are very proud of Timmy and all he has accomplished. There are videos on our facebook page for anyone who would like to see the run.

All of us at CAM are very proud of Timmy and all his achievements at the Academy.


Our LTI level 4 students paid a visit to Cork Penny Dinners last week with their assistant coordinator Dee Crowe, thanks to Caitriona Twomey for having them down once again. Pics of this visit are included in our gallery.

The Academy is now preparing for our Annual Summer School which will be taking place 3rd – 7th July.
