BBC Proms

Fridays at 6pm (August 13 - October 1)

The BBC Proms is a classical music festival held every summer at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Its aim: to bring the best in classical music to the widest possible audience, which remains true to founder-conductor Henry Wood's original vision in 1895. Join Classical 89 for a series of eight concerts from this year's Proms lineup.
