The Philharmonia Orchestra, featuring Island of Culture 2014 Youth Ambassador Jason Evans, has released a Christmas e-card of them performing a rendition of 'O Come, O Come Emmanuel'.

Evans, aged 23, is Principle Trumpet with The Philharmonia Orchestra making him the youngest principle trumpet in the UK and quite possibly the world. Jason is also an Associate Professor of Trumpet at the Royal Academy of Music and a Professor at the Royal College of Music.

The Arts Council provided funding for Jason, when he was younger, to perform in the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain and also funded him to run a workshop and perform a concert with his brass quintet, Inner City Brass, during Island of Culture 2014.
