The Category Finals of this year’s BBC Young Musician saw pianist Thomas Luke, oboist Ewan Millar, French horn player Annemarie Federle, percussionist Fang Zhang and violinist Coco Tomita progressing through to the next stage of the competition: the semi-finals.


However, because of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent UK lockdown, the semi-final and grand final of BBC Young Musician has been postponed until later in the year.

Although there is no exact date confirmed yet for either the semi and grand finals, it is hoped that both will be broadcast in the autumn.


The final of BBC Young Jazz Musician is also due to be staged as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival in November. Entries are still open for this competition. Click here for more details.
