Fantastic opportunity for talented young string players aged 16-25!

THE BBC PROMS are recruiting for their BBC Proms Youth Ensemble  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes

They are looking for talented young string players to perform alongside the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at a Late Night Prom on 10 September 2019, as part of a new commission by a well-known artist (full details to be announced on 17 April!).

Who can apply?
Up to 34 musicians aged 16 to 25 from across the UK who are playing at a Grade 8 standard (or equivalent) or above on the following instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass. The project involves playing new music, so they are looking for talented and enthusiastic musicians who will rise to the challenge! This isn’t a competition, they are particularly 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.

How to apply
Detailed information on how to apply for the BBC Proms Youth Ensemble 2019 is available on the BBC Proms website and applications are now open.
