Presented by:

Multi-award-winning trumpet player Alison Balsom will perform at the Royal Albert Hall with her first solo show.
Experience an unexpected theatrical journey through Paris with pieces from Alison’s latest album and music very close to her heart. Accompanied by jazz trio and string section, this will be an exciting theatrical performance of music from Bach to Gershwin and Vivaldi to Piazzolla with some inspiring jazz interludes along the way.
Alison Balsom's first performance at the Hall came back in 1994 when she played in the trumpet section of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain at the 100th season of the Proms. She has since gone on to win three Classical BRIT Awards, including Female Artist of the Year in 2009 & 2011, was the recipient of the Nordoff Robbins Classical Award and, more recently, Gramophone Artist of the Year 2013. She delivered a number of acclaimed performances at the Hall, including guest soloist at the Last Night of the Proms in 2009 and the UK premiere of Qigang Chen’s Joie éternelle at the BBC Proms this July.
