This year we make a few visits to the movies, including a symphonic montage of great James Bond themes to celebrate 50 years of British Bond classics. Other movie greats include the beautifully poignant theme from Schindler’s List, by John Williams and following last year’s tremendous response, and by popular demand, the Grace Spitfire makes a return appearance with another thrillingly choreographed display to William Walton’s “Spitfire Prelude”
Last Night of the Blickling Proms with a stunning fireworks finale, choreographed to music. Mezzo Soprano Jessica Walker sings popular opera arias as well as some great cinema classics including “The Way We Were” and “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic, and to end the evening, all of the traditional proms favourites including Nimrod, British Sea Songs, Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory. A veritable feast of great music and great spectacle!
This Proms evening will encapsulate all that is best in a grand, outdoor concert. So dust down your candelabra, bring your picnic, flags, food, and wine and soak up the amazing atmosphere in the company of friends.
