Unfortunately, it is often believed that classical music is only for old people or highbrowed posh people. The truth is, classical music is for everyone; young and old, rich and poor, black or white, and there is no better place to soak up the wonder of a full orchestra than at The Proms.
This event is an annual, eight-week summer season of daily orchestral classical music concerts, predominantly played in the majestic Royal Albert Hall in London. It was founded in 1895 and in the context of classical events it is widely considered to be the world’s largest and most democratic musical extravaganza of all time.
Finally, if you think you’re too cool for this event, think on, even the ‘badass’ rapper P Diddy is well known for shaking his ‘tail feathers’ down at The Proms. So, get in the mood by watching some highlights broadcast by The BBC.
