Edward Hyde continues his trailblazing year as he has been invited to become an Ambassador for the Diamond Fund for Choristers coordinated by the ‘The Cathedral Music Trust’.
Edward’s role will include performing at and attending high profile events to help raise funds to sustain Britain’s oldest living cultural heritage and he will be instrumental in representing the views of the chorister of today and the value of Cathedral music.
Edward has already discussed the impact that being a King’s chorister has had on his life during several of his radio and TV interviews and with his recent win of BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year 2016, Edward is a fantastic example of where a passion for Cathedral music can take you.
As an Ambassador, Edward will talk about how singing in a cathedral choir is one of the most valuable opportunities a child can be given in life, how Cathedral choirs contribute to society, wellbeing, community and national life and how Cathedral choirs contribute to the UK’s thriving music scene.
On taking this role, Edward will be following in the footsteps of other famous choristers such as Alexander Armstrong, Simon Russell Beale, Dame Felicity Lott and Dr Richard Seal and will perform his duties alongside ambassadors such as Katie Derham, Dr John Rutter, Jon Snow and Judith Weir.
Edward already has a varied list of upcoming performances and appearances including at Mansion House in the City and at the House of Lords.
Edwards’s phenomenal success is owed to his hard work at King’s Rochester, his dedication to Rochester Cathedral and the inspiring support of his family and friends.
