A classical singer who has already performed at the Royal Albert Hall is one of the entrants for Sunday's Essex Young Musician of the Year competition.

Jessica Edom, 23, from Black Notley, near Braintree, has been singing for ten years.

The former Broomfield Primary School and St John Payne Catholic Comprehensive School student also plays
the piano and flute to Grade 5.

Jessica, who is now studying at the Royal College of Music, was a soloist at the Mahler Songs Concert with Roger Vignoles in February and a guest soloist at a Barnardos charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London, last November, in addition to having given various solo recitals over the past two years.

Jessica will be performing in front of a panel of distinguished judges at the Budworth Hall, High Street, Ongar.

The first round commences at 11.45am and is open to the public, and the public final will take the form of a concert which will commence at 6.30pm.

Ongar Music Club's distinguished patron, pianist John Lill, will be the chairman of the adjudicators at the final.

Ongar Music Club chairman Jane Webster said: "We are delighted with the number of young people who have contacted us this year and look forward to a super day of music-making from the competitors. 

"Audience members are welcome to come and go during the day, and their all-day £10 ticket admits them to the final in the evening too."

Tickets will be available on the door or can be booked in advance by emailing
