Congratulations to Naomi Simon, BBC Chorister of the Year 2022!

We are delighted to announce that Naomi Simon, BBC Chorister of the Year, will be returning to sing with us in our Choral Extravaganza Concert in March 2023.  Naomi first sang with us in our centenary performance of Elijah at the Cadogan Hall, London in March 2022.

Currently a boarder at Rugby School, Naomi Simon has loved singing since she was first introduced to choral singing at the age of 7 with the York Minster Choir. She particularly enjoyed Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s St Matthew Passion and the Christmas services at York Minster, and was also involved in choral outreach singing with local state schools.

Naomi joined Rugby School at 13 where her confidence as a soprano soloist has grown. She has been helping to promote the New Chorister Programme and sang the solo piece Adonai Roi (Psalm 23). In addition to singing, Naomi plays the saxophone and the piano.
