Girls in final of choir contest

Have your say

TWO members of Sheffield Cathedral Girls’ Choir have been chosen for the national final of BBC Radio 2’s Young Chorister of the Year competition.

Vanessa Frampton and Emily Chattle will take part in the final on October 29 at St Martin-in-the-Fields in London. The contest will be broadcast on Radio 2 on Sunday, November 4.

Vanessa has been singing in the Cathedral choir since 2009, and has just begun studying for her A levels. On a recent trip to Venice, she negotiated a discounted trip on a gondola by agreeing to sing in place of the gondolier.

Emily, a student at Notre Dame School, has been in the choir since 2010.
