Tonight, Jane Jones presents an exclusive broadcast of the Trinity Laban Young Musicians Gala.
Trinity Laban is one of this country’s most prestigious conservatoires – and on Monday 4 November, its Young Musicians Gala took place at St John’s, Smith Square in London.
The concert was staged in aid of Junior Trinity's Bursary Fund, giving young musicians of all backgrounds access to the highest quality of musical training.
The programme was selected by Lord Lipsey, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Classical Music, and Chair of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
Featuring exceptionally talented young musicians from Junior Trinity and professionals early in their careers, the concert included a variety of favourites, including Bernstein's America from West Side Story, Mozart Arias, Gershwin's Summertime and Balakirev's Islamey. It ended with a performance of Dvorak's Piano Quintet in A major by the Sacconi Quartet - pictured - with the star undergraduate pianist Kerem Hasan.
Classic FM was there to record this celebration of incredibly talented young music-makers and tonight, Jane Jones gives you the chance to hear this concert in full – exclusive to Classic FM.
