Peter Moore in BBC final

Written By: David Read Comments: 0

Really happy, couldn't believe it, excited.

These were the words from 12-year old trombonist Peter Moore on hearing he'd been selected to represent brass in this weekend's grand final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year 2008 competition. Following the front-page article in The Trombonist which included commentary from David Childs and Andrew Berryman, BTS members will no doubt be interested to watch Peter perform in the prestigious final this weekend. For those able to get to Cardiff, there will be performances on both days this weekend. On Saturday night, Peter and the other finalists will perform a concerto with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and on Sunday afternoon they will each perform 'a piece that is particularly personal to them'. To see highlights of the final, watch BBC 2 on Sunday 6pm-8pm. The full event will be on BBC Radio 3 on Monday from 7.00pm. Full details at the BBC website. You can also watch 'YouTube'-style videos of Peter Moore playing in the brass final and in interview.
