BBC Young Chorister of the Year performs Christmas repertoire in York care home
BBC Young Chorister of the Year 2022 Naomi Simon has returned to her hometown to entertain residents at a York care home with her repertoire of Christmas classics.
The 17-year-old, who landed the prize in December last year, put on a special performance for the residents of Chocolate Works, an 82-bed care home in Bishopthorpe Road.
Naomi was introduced to the home by Thea Jacob, a York-based musician who regularly visits there, and who is the founder of Song Box music classes.
Song Box is a community music provider, created in 1994 during a career-break activity while Thea’s sons were small.
Naomi was just six months old when her mother took her to her first Song Box class where she was first introduced to music.
