About This Event

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED

Our BBC Proms Inspire Day on Wednesday 22 August will bring together young composers aged 12 to 18 from across the UK to take part in a range of workshops and activities, including:

• An opening warm up with Pete Letanka and Kerry Andrew
• Speed-mentoring with Inspire Ambassadors (previous winners of the Inspire Competition)
• An introduction to Virtual Reality from composer Anna Meredith following the first ever VR Prom and a chance to try out an immersive VR experience

Participants can also choose between the following workshops:

• Composition masterclass with Kerry Andrew (please note this workshop is now closed)
• Song-writing with Rachel Collier
• Jam and improvisation with Pete Letanka

There will be something for everyone, whether an experienced composer or a beginner who is curious to find out more! Participants will also be reserved a place at the sold-out Inspire Concert at the Radio Theatre and two free Promming passes to Prom 54 at the Royal Albert Hall.

This event is open to 12-18 year olds (parents/guardians do not need to accompany as participants will be chaperoned by the BBC). Please be aware places are limited and advance booking is required.
