BBC Proms Youth Ensemble application deadline


Thursday 10th May 2018 10:00am

Are you aged 16-25 years old? Playing at Grade 8+ standard (or equivalent) on a brass or percussion instrument? 

The BBC are looking for up to 30 young musicians from across the UK to join the 2018 BBC Proms Youth Ensemble to perform at the First Night of the Proms on Friday 13 July 2018.

The ensemble will be part of a new commission 'Five Telegrams' by Anna Meredith and 59 Productions, performing alongside the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, conducted by Sakari Oramo.

This isn’t a competition. The BBC are particularly keen to reach young people from all backgrounds who show promise but might not have had this kind of opportunity to perform before.

For more information and application details, please visit the BBC Proms website

Application closing date: 10am on Thursday 10 May 2018
