The Last Night Of The Proms

Last Night of the Proms is going to be held this year on Saturday 11 September, 2010 at Royal Albert Hall London, UK. The Proms, more formally known as The BBC Proms, or The Henry Wood Promenade Concerts presented by the BBC, is an eight-week summer season of daily orchestral classical music concerts and other events held annually, predominantly in the Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington, London.

Founded in 1895 by Sir Henry Wood, the Proms concerts at the Royal Albert Hall take over London's classical musical calendar every summer and, with some justification, can claim to be the greatest classical music festival in the world.

Over eight weeks, the Royal Albert Hall - one of the capital's most majestic venues - resounds to the sound of over 70 great concerts, covering a vast range, including semi-staged operas, early and contemporary music, chamber orchestras, choral concerts and world music, all amidst a staple diet of symphony orchestra concerts. Also well established are the Monday lunchtime proms at Cadogan Hall. A visit to London in the summer months without attending a Prom is a visit wasted!
