3:24pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
A CHORISTER chorister from York Minster is in the running for a prestigious national title.
Peter Aksamit-Hollingworth will compete alongside three other boys and four girls on Monday, October 28, for the title of BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year 2013.
A Year 8 pupil at the Minster School, he will sing two short pieces before a panel of judges in St Martin-in-the-Fields on Trafalgar Square in London.
The title is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious in the country and around 1,000 choristers enter each year.
York Minster’s director of music, Robert Sharpe, said: “Peter only joined the Minster choir last year, and it has been a pleasure having him as part of the team, so we are extremely proud of him for progressing so far in this competition.
“He has got a beautiful voice, so we wish him the very best of luck in the final.”
