The Creative Project composition is co-commissioned by Music For Youth, the GLF Schools Foundation and the Tasso Foundation, in association with RMG Associates.

Music for Youth will choose 2 exceptional young solo pianists to join the Creative Project at the Royal Albert Hall this November.

Music for Youth recently launched a search for two exceptional young pianists who will open the first and second half of the Music for Youth Proms. This opportunity is part of the specially commissioned Creative Project, which has been composed and arranged by MFY Ambassador, Jack Pepper and will feature over 1,000 young musicians from across the UK.

On 14th & 15th November, over 3,000 young musicians from across the UK will perform live on-stage at the Royal Albert Hall for two unforgettable nights of music in the biggest and most exciting Music for Youth Proms ever. 

Amazing young musicians from over 100 schools will perform new music and traditional repertoire spanning multiple styles and genres on the iconic Royal Albert Hall stage. The gala concerts include orchestral classics, Irish dancing, concert bands, choirs, jazz, and pop bands. The diversity of the Music for Youth Proms showcases the breadth of talent being nurtured in schools across the UK thanks to inspirational music teachers.  

The Music for Youth 2023 Creative Project is a thank-you note from Jack to his inspiring piano teacher, Mike, and a celebration of music teachers far and wide. The massed ensemble will feature over 2,000 young people and a specially commissioned ‘Family Chorus’ where families from across the country can get involved.
