Simon Halsey begins tenure as Director, BBC Proms Youth Choir
Published: 16 July 2012
Simon Halsey begins his four-year term as “Director, BBC Proms Youth Choir” this summer. This ambitious project involves bringing young people from all corners of the United Kingdom together each year for a performance of a major British choral work at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.
The first will be Michael Tippett’s “A Child of Our Time”, and Halsey will be working the choir intensively during the weeks leading up to the final performance, which will be given on 1 August with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and David Robertson.
