A cellist plays among an orchestra

The BBC Proms returned with a live audience for the first time since September 2019

Here at Help Musicians, we are proud to be able to say that 1 in 4 soloists performing this year received support from us at the start of their careers.

On the evening of Monday 16 August it was the turn of Welsh soprano and Help Musicians ambassador, Natalya Romaniw, who performed as part of Prom 19: A Night at the Opera. 

With themes of separation and reconciliation, it brought together the brightest stars of British Opera, including Natalya and our newest ambassador, Scottish tenor, Nicky Spence.

Before the performance Natalya spoke to us about what support from Help Musicians has meant to her and musicians like her.
