Alison saves the day at Classical Brits

The Classical Brit awards were hosted on the 4th of May at the Royal Albert Hall. Unfortunately, the awards didn't live up to their name as foreigners swept almost all of the awards. Luckily for us Brits however, a young trumpeter helped to save the day. Twenty-seven year old Alison Balsom (left), won the Young British Classical Performer prize, beating violinist Nicola Benedetti, who became the BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2004. Alison was awarded the prize for her impressive interpretation of Bach's work on her latest album Bach: Works for Trumpet, which I suspect has a clever double meaning in it's title (what do you think?). Another British winner was the Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins, who won Album of the Year for the second year in succession.

The show has already been televised on Sunday 7th May. However, if you missed it don't worry because it's due to be repeated on ITV 1, Sunday 14th May, at 11pm.
