A musical prodigy is looking forward to a bright career after winning the Young Musician of the Year.

Louth Male Voice Choir held the annual competition for budding musicians living or studying in East Lindsey.

And after some fierce competition Juliet Haley, 17, from Louth, was named the winner of the seniors category and overall winner.

Many of the winners of this prestigious competition over the years have gone on to have long musical careers and Juliet is aiming to do the same, hoping to go on to a conservatoire and become a soloist.

On her extremely polished and professional performance she would appear to be well on the way.

The competition is split into three age groups, under 11s (juniors), under 14s (intermediates) and under 18s (seniors) and is open to any category within voice, piano, orchestral or brass.

Two contestants are entered for two categories and there was a variation from voice, piano, to bassoon and euphonium.

Preliminary rounds were held in the morning with the finals at Nicholl Hill Methodist Church, Louth.

The winners of the other sections were: juniors - Helena Kurczewska (piano); intermediates - Darcie Radford (piano).
