The first performers for the Royal Albert Hall event are also announced today, proving that this music gives rise to global stars, national treasures and exciting new talent.

Andrea Bocelli is Classic BRIT Awards’ royalty. The biggest selling classical artist of all time, he has performed for four U.S. presidents, two popes and the Royal Family, as well as at ceremonies for the Olympic Games and the World Cup.  Known for opera and global crossover hits including ‘Time To Say Goodbye’, he recently scored a worldwide Number 1 with Ed Sheeran on the song ‘Perfect Symphony’ and has a very special performance in mind for this year’s ceremony.

Michael Ball & Alfie Boe are two great modern voices who came ‘Together’ for 2016’s best-selling album in the UK, achieving the Christmas Number 1 record.  In 2017, their second album ‘Together Again’ went straight to Number 1 and two sold out arena tours cemented their position as two of Britain’s best loved entertainers and pushed their record sales over 1 million within a year.

The Classic BRIT Awards will welcome back one of our great classical music performers. Welsh bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel is a regular star of the world’s most prestigious concert stages and opera houses, including the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; the Metropolitan Opera, New York; Opéra National de Paris; Teatro Alla Scala and Zürich Opera. A Grammy, Classic BRIT and Gramophone Award winner, Sir Bryn received a knighthood for his services to music in 2017.

Tokio Myers is part of a new vanguard of classically trained artists, a supremely talented musician who won Britain’s Got Talent 2017 with his musical mash-ups incorporating classical music elements.  State school educated and trained at the Royal College of Music, he is proof that this music is open to everyone.

You can book tickets the Classic BRITs on June 13th here.
