Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
We're into the second day of the Music For Youth Schools Prom, and Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been talking to some of the performers backstage at London's Royal Albert Hall. Here he meets the members of the Warwickshire County Youth Orchestra.
The orchestra has been running since 1984 and since that time has tackled much of the classic symphonic orchestral repertoire.
It has provided an opportunity for some of Warwickshire finest young musicians to meet on a regular basis to gain valuable orchestral experience and to socialise together.
The orchestra has recently toured such places as Belgium, Spain, Germany and Austria. The invitation to perform at the Royal Albert Hall is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication.
Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau caught up with two members from the orchestra backstage the Royal Albert Hall for the Schools Prom to find out all about this incredible journey.
