Opportunity for young musicians to perform at the BBC Proms

This is an incredible opportunity for a young musician to perform at the BBC Proms - First Night of the Proms.

But you don't have long to apply, as it is closing at 10am on Thursday 10 May.

Please make sure to take note of the following criteria:

They are looking for up to 30 musicians aged 16* to 25 from across the UK who are playing at a Grade 8 standard (or equivalent) or above in the following instruments:

  • Trumpet
  • Trombone
  • Euphonium
  • Percussion

The project involves playing new music and the performance will be staged using the space of the Royal Albert Hall in an interesting way, so we are looking for committed and enthusiastic musicians who will rise to the challenge!

This isn’t a competition and they’re keen to reach young people from all backgrounds who show promise but might not have had this kind of opportunity to perform with professional musicians.

Applicants must be available for rehearsals on all the following dates:

  • Sunday 17 June (full day)
  • Monday 9 July – Friday 13 July (full days Monday-Wednesday, evening only on the Thursday, afternoon & evening on the Friday)

If you are 15 but turn 16 by 29 June 2018 you are eligible to apply.

Full details are on the BBC website.
