Bath Young Musician of the Year You saw them here first! Head to the beautiful Georgian Pump Rooms in the centre of Bath for a glimpse of the future of classical music. Five young musicians bring us exceptional performances on horn, piano, bassoon, saxophone and harp. Competitors must be under the age of 21 and live within a 15-mile radius, so this is a chance to join a much-loved Bath event.
