Drawing on performers from all the different programmes we run across the year, including Frequencies, New Music Stage, and MFY Exchange as well as the National Festival, there's something for everyone across the three different evenings of music and performance. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

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
