Winner of three Classical BRIT Awards, trumpeter Alison Balsom, the darling of the classical musical world, performs her first solo show at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday 13th October 2014. Alison has delivered a number of acclaimed performances at the iconic London concert hall since she first appeared here in 1994 as part the National Youth Orchestra, including a notable solo performance at the Last Night of the Proms in 2009. But this is her first solo concert here, when she will be performing music from her yet to be released album with some of her favourite artists.
