A chorister at St Asaph Cathedral has reached the finals of the prestigious BBC Chorister of the Year 2018 competition.
Grace Dixon, who’s 15 and from Holywell is one of only eight finalists – 4 girls and 4 boys – who performed in the national final at the weekend.
Grace is a Year 11 pupil at The Queen’s School Chester and will take her GCSE Examinations next summer. She also sings with The Queen’s Chamber Choir which performs at Chester Cathedral and other venues in Chester for school events and for charity performances.
The Dean of St Asaph Cathedral, the Very Reverend Nigel Williams said: “This is a fabulous achievement for Grace who is a very talented member of our choir. She sings beautifully and offers support and encouragement to younger members of the choir too.
“Music has been part of Cathedral worship for more than 1,400 and relies on talented choristers like Grace and all those in our choir to ensure that tradition continues.”
St Asaph Cathedral Choir has appeared on national radio and television, both in live and recorded radio broadcasts and has featured in BBC TV “Songs of Praise. They have released two CD’s and have appeared in concert alongside Russell Watson and Aled Jones.
