The Last Night of the Proms at St Jude's is always special, and this year is no exception. Come hear Tchaikovsky's popular, evergreen 'Serenade.' It is a heartfelt piece, now considered one of the late Romantic era's definitive compositions. Mendelssohn's String symphony no 10 was composed when he was only 13 years old. An example of his genius, it has entranced concert goers for decades. Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante is arguably his geatest violin concerto. Written when he was 23 years old, it is a masterpiece and one of his most beautiful works.

The London Mozart Players, one of the world’s finest chamber ensembles, is dedicated to harnessing the passions and talents of its musicians so that audiences can revel in the joy of world-class performance. Its pioneering approach to music-making marks the orchestra as a leader in terms of outreach, education and diversity, dedicated to reaching new audiences with classical music.

Featuring tonight are Aki Blendis, who was a string finalist in the BBC Young Musician 2022 competition, and Jaren Ziegler who won the 2022 string final - the first violist to do so.
