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 2018 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.

We will be announcing more details about each of the three projects very soon, so stay tuned!
