90 concerts, 15 world premieres, 8 venues, 1 inimitable Prom series. For lovers of diverse music from around the world, there's nothing quite like London's annual orchestral celebration, now in its 123rd year.
This round up of Prom events from Luxury London is testament to the sheer variety of musical performances you can watch. Now more accessible than ever, the legendary Last Night of the Proms can now be enjoyed festival style on the big screen at Hyde Park if you're not able to secure tickets for the Royal Albert Hall.
At Dexters, we view that final Prom at the start of September as a last hurrah to our London summer. It's just one of many dates in the calendar we make it our business to now about. After all our local knowledge is one of the things that sets us apart.
Calling all music lovers: the 123rd Proms season is now underway. Running from now through to September, the range of concerts – some 90 in all – is extraordinary. Principally a celebration of classical music, featuring the greatest and most familiar composers from the past 400 years, the Proms also provide a springboard for new music, new musicians and new musical ideas. The series attracts the most famous orchestras, conductors and soloists from all over the world, and the audiences flocking into the hall or tuning in at home (every concert is broadcast by the BBC) are completely international, too. But what makes this festival so very special?
