Here are the six finalists of this year’s Eurovision Young Musicians!

Over the last two days, 18 participants have taken to the stage to perform their chosen pieces at this year’s Eurovision Young Musicians, and from those 18 participants, the jury have selected a total of six to continue through to the final.

  • British Bassoonist, Ursula Leveaux
  • Spanish percussionist, Noè Roderigo Gisbert

These six musicians will continue through to the final which will take place on the 23rd of August. The finalists will also perform a concerto movement alongside the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra which will be conducted by Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard.
