Odense Symphony Orchestra is the host for this year’s award ceremony, where classical music celebrates itself with awards for Album of the Year, The P2 Listeners Prize, The Fiery Soul of the Year, Event of the Year and many others. The main prize is the title of P2 Artist, which in 2021 will be awarded to Bent Sørensen.

Several award winners, as well as Tine Thing Helseth, will be performing in tonight’s concert, which can be heard in Bent Sørensen’s Trumpet Concerto and Haydn’s Immortal Ditto.
