Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
It's the final day of the Music For Youth Schools Prom, and Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been backstage at the Royal Albert Hall chatting to the performers of tonight's concert. Here he meets the members of Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra and Massed Ensemble.
The orchestra is one of three ensembles - two orchestras and a windband - who meet every Saturday morning at the Centre for Music in Oxford, the home of Oxfordshire County Music Service.
250 of the County's most talented instrumentalists come together in these ensembles. As part of their annual schedule, twice a year the orchestra performs four concerts attended by 2400 primary school children from across Oxfordshire.
Tonight at the Schools Prom the orchestra will team up with the massed choir for a special collaboration. Tim Lihoreau spoke to members of both groups backstage before their performance.
