Clive Anderson takes us on a fascinating journey into the heart of music making as eight famous amateurs with a passion for classical music do battle for the chance to conduct the BBC Concert Orchestra at the world-famous Proms in the Park. Actors Jane Asher and David Soul, Drum and Bass star Goldie, Blur bassist Alex James, broadcasters Katie Derham and Peter Snow, and comedians Sue Perkins and Bradley Walsh compete to be the Maestro.
The celebrity students go on a week-long training camp where they must face an orchestra for the first time. On the final day they conduct the BBC Concert Orchestra in front of a panel of expert judges before the orchestra votes one of them out for good.
