Canterbury Finalists 2015

Four boys and four girls will compete with one boy winner and one girl winner but we have to wait until 22 October to find out who has won!

Louise Moelwyn-Hughes, Head of St Edmund’s School, comments “To have two out of four boy Choristers representing by St Edmund’s School and Canterbury Cathedral is a phenomenal achievement and we wish both boys every success.”

PS The winner of the competition in 2007 was also a St Edmund’s pupil, Joel Whitewood.
