BBC Urban Proms

Institute student, Vic Jamieson, noticed an opportunity to perform at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall being promoted by the Institute’s internal career service “The Hub”. He subsequently contacted the company involved and was offered an audition. Vic performed brilliantly at his audition and will now be performing with Fazer Official and the BBC Symphony Orchestra during the Urban Classic Prom at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday the 10th of August.

The night will merge classical sounds from the BBC Symphony Orchestra with leading performers from the UK’s urban music scene including Laura Mvula, Wretch 32, Maverick Sabre, Lady Leshurr and Jacob Banks.

Speaking of his upcoming performance Vic said, “I'm playing with Fazer and the BBC Symphony Orchestra this Saturday at the Urban Classic Proms. Preparing for the gig has been one of the best things in my entire life, I can't contain how excited I am to take to the stage on Saturday. We've had a ton of mentoring, and I've been able to jam with some incredible talent. I've grown a lot as a musician. I'm so grateful to the Institute for giving me the opportunity to audition! Luckily I was what they were looking for!”
