Aurora Orchestra, Nicholas Collon

Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces the winning entries from this year's competition for young composers. Members of the Aurora Orchestra are conducted by Nicholas Collon.

Each year the Proms holds a competition for young composers. Entries are received from all over the country and judged by a distinguished panel of composers. The winners have their entries played in a special concert given by the Aurora Orchestra and conducted by Nicholas Collon, held at the Royal College of Music. The young composers also receive a commission to write a new work to be performed at the Royal Albert Hall later in the year. Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces the concert, meets some of the composers and finds out a little of what goes on behind the scenes.
