Fazer's Urban Takeover Episode 2 of 2

Two-part documentary in which Fazer from N-Dubz attempts to put seven unknown urban musicians through a crash course in classical music before performing with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC Proms.

In a bid to convert the group to classical music, Fazer takes his young musical recruits, now known as the Seven Chapters, to a full on classical prom, Beethoven's 5th Symphony

In preparation for their performance at the Royal Albert Hall the Seven Chapters take on classical master classes with some new mentors, with gospel singer Shevelle learning a section of Ave Maria. The group also hang out with the Thames Youth Orchestra to see how they roll and how much they can learn on a musical instrument in a day.

With the concert of a lifetime looming close, emotions run high as the Seven Chapters undertake their final rehearsals with the full 85-piece BBC Symphony Orchestra. As the big night arrives, nerves and excitement abound as the young performers take the stage to follow performances by Wretch 32, Laura Mvulu, Lady Leshurr, Maverick Sabre, Jacob Banks and their mentor Fazer.
