The Music for Youth Proms were held on 14th and 15th November 2023, where thousands of young musicians performed alongside each other on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Two special evening concerts showcased full-scale symphony orchestras alongside Irish dancers, Japanese Taiko drummers and some of the best young jazz bands and singer-songwriters from across the UK.
This year’s theme centred around a national campaign #thankyourmusicteacher to celebrate inspiring music teachers and highlight how music brings us all together.
Say thanks to your music teacher
Let’s celebrate music teachers: How you can support the campaign
Let's come together to honour the incredible influence that music teachers have on our lives. From inspiring a love of music to giving us a platform to express ourselves, these educators have an amazing impact. Music has the ability to connect people from all backgrounds, creating a bond of understanding and harmony. Join us in celebrating these remarkable teachers and the transformative power of music.
