c. 9.45pm: BBC PROMS INSPIRE - YOUNG COMPOSERS' CONCERT

The annual BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers' Competition for 12-18 year olds provides what most composers only dream of: the chance to have their music performed by professional musicians at the BBC Proms and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Not only this - winners also receive a BBC commission for a high-profile performance and are mentored throughout the process by a professional composer

 

On Monday 15th August 2016 the Aurora Orchestra gave a concert in the Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House in London featuring the six winning pieces from this year's competition. Over the past week we've been broadcasting these performances and tonight it's the turn of 16 year old Morgan Overton and his piece entitled Two Boys.
