Bristol Proms return for third year
PUBLISHED: 16:00 23 July 2015
A host of classical music acts will descend upon Bristol’s Old Vic theatre for The Bristol Proms later this month.
The event is now in its third year and the programme will include concerts, informative talks and even a pub crawl.
The bill will feature a wealth of highly-celebrated contemporary performers including Daniel Hope, Milos Karadaglic, Alison Balsom, Hakon and Mari Samuelsen, Jan Lisiecki and Pumeza Matshikiza.
The Sacconi Quartet will continue the tradition of opening the proms with a concert in the dark, playing Beethoven’s String Quartet No.14 in C-sharp minor entirely from memory.
The Erebus Ensemble will perform Songs of Hope In 40 Voices for the event’s finale.
Jon Boden, front-man of acclaimed folk ensemble Bellowhead, will perform and explore some new solo material in public for the very first time.
Milos Karadaglic has been described by The Sunday Times as ‘the biggest classical-guitar phenomenon since John Williams and will play from a roster of songs that includes Spanish classics, cool Latin music and new arrangements of Beatles songs.
The proms will run between Monday and August 1 at various times.
Tickets range from £5 to £34 and there are free tickets available for eight to 25-year-olds for several events.
