Proms in the Park

Proms in the Park

The Scottish portion of BBC’s 2 month long event The Proms, comes to Glasgow Green on the 14th of September with Proms in the Park.

One of the musical highlights of the year the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Bell, takes centre stage performing classical pieces, traditional Scottish reels, as well as some well-known favourites.

Presented by tenor and BBC Radio Scotland presenter Jamie MacDougall, with special guests still to be added to accompany the Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Last year’s special guest performer was Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

Glasgow Green, The Titanic Slipways in Belfast and also London’s Hyde Park are all hosting a Proms in the Park to coince with the finale of “The Proms” in London’s Albert Hall. Therefore, the live link up between the venues and the thousands of people in attendance all singing together is the unique crescendo to the previous 2 months of events.
