BBC Last Night at the Proms
Every year the musical world of Britain explodes in a profusion of classical vibes with the return of the annual BBC Proms. The event runs from 14 July – 9 September, thrilling audiences with 8 weeks of concerts, talks, workshops, family events and more, concluding with the famous Last Night of the Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Presented by the BBC, the Proms (otherwise known as the Henry Wood Promenade Concerts) are the highlight of the summer season. The daily offering of orchestral concerts presents some of the best classical performances around today. Predominantly held in the Royal Albert Hall in central London, the event will include more than 70 concerts across the UK.
On Saturday 5 August audiences can enjoy a performance by The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, featuring Francisco Coll and Thomas Adès. Audiences can also look forward to performances such as Gurrelieder – a love story of gigantic proportions.
The extravaganza reaches its climatic finale on Saturday 9 September 2017 with final performance held in Hyde Park, the Royal Albert Hall and The Glasgow Green.
But wait…it’s not all just classical music. There is something for everyone. The Kinks frontman and all-round legend, Sir Ray Davies will headline this year’s Proms in the Park: Hyde Park. Hosted by Michael Ball, Sir Ray Davies will be joined by leading soloists including bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel, singer and actress Elaine Paige, 1970s sensation Gilbert O’Sullivan, as well as two of the UK’s most iconic pop groups: Steps and Texas, who provide early evening entertainment alongside a performance from the cast of Five Guys Named Moe.
