Visit BBC Proms this summer

23rd August 2011

Visitors staying in luxury hotels in London may be interested in attending the capital's premier classical and operatic music event - the BBC Proms 2011.

Often billed as the world's greatest music festival, the event features various musical performances at the Royal Albert Hall, in London's well-heeled Kensington district.

Up until September 10th, music lovers will be able to hear some of the world's most distinguished musicians and orchestras play well-known arias and symphonies by classical greats including Stravinksy, Ravel, Tchaikovsky, Handel and Strauss.

On Saturday August 27th from 15:00 to 16:30, concert goers will be able to hear BBC singers perform an enchanting selection of musical numbers inspired by Hildegard of Bingen, with conducting from Stevie Wishart and Robert Hollingsworth.

Sunday August 28th will see a selection of musicians perform Elijah, an oratorio written by felix Mendelssohn in 1846 for the Birmingham Festival.

Performers at Prom 58 will include soprano Rosemary Joshua, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, baritone Simon Keenlyside, tenor Robert Murray, the Ulster Youth Chamber Choir and the Taplow Youth Choir. The performance will be conducted by Paul McCreesh.

For film lovers, Prom 59: Horray for Hollywood comes recommended. As part of this concert, John Wilson and his orchestra will perform a set of memorable numbers inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood film musicals.

Well-known music from the dawn of cinema itself right up until the 1960s will be performed, with an extended sequence included in special homage to the films of world-famous American dancers Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astaire.
