MFY Proms

The Music for Youth Proms concerts are a celebration of the entire Music for Youth annual season, showcasing high quality performances from some of the UK’s most creative, innovative and energetic young musicians. 

The spectacular finale to the year of Music for Youth events, each night 1000 different young musicians take part in a concert like no other: full-scale orchestras showcased side by side with some of the best jazz bands, chamber groups, rock bands and choirs from across the UK. Truly a not-to-be-missed occasion!
Immerse yourself in music new and old and enjoy THE musical celebration of the year!

The Music for Youth Proms 2018 will take place on Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th November.

We are in the process of programming all three different nights, and more information will be announced in due course. 

Photographs of all performers and performances from across the three nights in 2017 are available at

In 2017 we also captured the memories of all three concerts for DVDs which are available for order at our production company Black Swan's website




Massed Ensembles

As part of the celebrations, across each of the three nights we welcome a different massed ensemble performance project from across the country 

The three Massed Ensembles for the Music for Youth Proms 2017 will join us from different regions of the UK and each offer a wider group of young people an opportunity to take part in a large scale project, showcasing their locally produced work on a national stage.

By supporting these ensembles Music for Youth aims to encourage innovation, ambition and good practice.


The Massed Ensembles selected for this year are:

  • Monday 13th November: South Yorkshire Hubs (Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield)
  • Tuesday 14th November: Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust and Rutland Music
  • Wednesday 15th November: Kingston-Upon-Hull Music Service and Hull Music Hub
