BBC Young Jazz Musician 2018 Final

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Witness five musicians compete for top spot at this concert, the thrilling conclusion of this year’s BBC Young Jazz Musician competition.

This year the five young finalists each play a set at Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.

After the five performances, consisting of standards and brand new tunes written or arranged by the finalists themselves, the internationally-renowned jury decide who will become BBC Young Jazz Musician 2018.

The winner in 2016, trumpet and flugelhorn player, bandleader and composer Alexandra Ridout will return to play a set while the jury are making the decision.

BBC Young Jazz Musician was established in 2014 to provide a platform for the UK’s most talented young jazz performers, echoing the way in which BBC Young Musician showcases young classical performers.

Event supported by ABRSM.
