*Postponed* BBC Young Musician of the Year 2020 final

This event has been postponed. We are awaiting confirmation of the new date and will be informing ticket holders.

Join us at the Grand Final of BBC Young Musician 2020, as three supremely talented young people each perform a concerto with the BBC Philharmonic. At the end of the evening, a winner will be chosen by a distinguished panel of judges.

This performance will be filmed for broadcast on BBC television.
