Search is on for BBC Young Chorister of the Year

Wednesday July 1st 2020

Songs of Praise and BBC Radio 2 have joined forces to find The BBC Young Chorister of the Year.

Former choristers Aled Jones and Katherine Jenkins will coach the five boys and five girls aged 10-16 who are selected to go through to the radio and television competition, where they will sing in front of an expert panel of judges.

The competition launched on June 21, and singers have until midnight on Monday July 20 to submit their entries. The recording will be at The Monastery in Manchester in mid-September.

Singers apply online by submitting two short films of themselves singing a Christmas carol or song and a sacred song such as a hymn, classical solo, spiritual, inspirational, gospel or worship song.

The winning chorister will receive a trophy, appear on future BBC Radio programmes and on Songs of Praise and have a recording session with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.
