The MFY REMIX Prom 2021
All The Hall's A Stage in this special event that brought young musicians from across the country back together for our most inclusive Prom ever, with over 72% of the groups performing taking part in MFY work for the first time. The Prom featured a creative project for up to 2,000 young people led by composer Tim Steiner, performances to support and encourage young musicians and music educators as they restart, rebuild and reboot live music making post-Lockdown, young people in presenter roles and a spectacular finale for all performers inspired by a video made in lockdown which featured on our National Festival video wall in July 2021.
The Creative Project
This bespoke creative project, which was rehearsed for the first time together on the day of the concert, involved up to 2,000 young people and was led by composer Tim Steiner.
This project was free to take part in, and we invited young people in musical groups to take part, whether those groups be a school class, a Music Hub group or an independent group.
With Josh AKA Intalekt
AfterGlow is a technology-based remix project, commissioned by MFY, and led by Lewisham Music. It expands the scope of the MFY Remix Prom beyond the live event, builds on all our digital work over the past 18 months and appeals to young music creators working in contemporary genres.
Taking the audio stems from the REMIX Prom 2021, young people will create remixed tracks, guided by Lewisham Music tutor Josh a.k.a Intalekt. These remixed tracks will then be showcased by Music For Youth in the new year.
Covid-19 Safety and Procedures
There are currently no restrictions on Out-of-School activities or Performing Arts but the safety of all children, young people, teachers, artists and staff at Music For Youth events remains a major priority for us. We will continue to monitor government guidance and work in close collaboration with the venue (Royal Albert Hall) in the lead up to the MFY Remix Prom 2021 to ensure a safe environment for everyone attending and participating in the event. Any updates to guidance and protocols in relation to Covid-19 will be clearly communicated to our participants, performers, chaperones, crew and staff.

Music For Youth is grateful to the Royal Albert Hall for their support of this event through a charity discounted let. This is one of the many ways in which the Hall, which is an independent registered charity, supports others in the charitable sector.
