From the morning's rehearsals to a brilliant evening of performances, we captured all three days at the Schools Prom as more than 6000 people descended on the Royal Albert Hall for three evenings of great music.
This week it's the annual Music for Youth Schools Prom concerts, and the atmosphere on and off stage is simply electric. Music plays in every corridor and young performers buzz through the Royal Albert Hall with hundreds of different instruments, ready to perform in front of a 5000-strong audience on one of the UK's most iconic stages.
Performers including Kirklees Youth Symphony Orchestra, Double Helix, Maria Fidelis Convent School Gospel Choir and more than 600 performers from Vivendi Sounds Bradford Massed Ensemble took to the stage on Monday night - and we've captured the entire day in an amazing time-lapse video.
If you're not too exhausted from watching the first energetic video, we've captured the atmosphere in a video for each night, featuring performances from Mammoth Sound, Ripple Escola de Samba, Bells Angels and Northamptonshire County Youth Orchestra on Tuesday, and the Jocelyn Trio, STAR, Thomas Telford School Choir, and City of Belfast Youth Orchestra on Wednesday.
The soundtrack to each video is an exclusive performance from one of the artists, from the atmospheric Smetana from Hampshire String Quartet on Monday to the lively African rhythms from the Kingsmead Dynamix on Wednesday - giving you an idea of just how diverse these amazing concerts are!
