Congratulations to Anna, VI, who won the BBC Radio 2 Young Choristers of the Year 2019. The BBC Radio 2 Young Choristers of the Year, now in its 33rd year of broadcast, celebrates young talent singing for worship in churches, chapels, cathedrals and beyond. Eight contestants from around the UK, aged between 11 and 17 years of age, compete in the grand final, which took place at the BBC Philharmonic Studio at Media City UK and was broadcast in a special programme on Radio 2 on 22 December. Anna, a lead soprano at Saint Mary’s Church in Barnes, received a trophy and a recording session with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. She will also have the opportunity to take part in a variety of BBC radio and television programmes and to perform at engagements in the wider community throughout the year.
