Dear friends

We trust you are well - keeping healthy and safe.

The wait is over!
As there are no in-person concerts happening so I wouldn't be able to offer tickets this year but from from this Friday, live music will be back on Royal Albert Hall's stage as the BBC Proms begin two weeks of special concerts brought to you from the Hall's iconic auditorium.

Sakari Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra kick off this season’s live offering with a specially commissioned work by English composer Hannah Kendall. Tuxedo: Vasco ‘de’ Gama – its title a quote from American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat’s iconic matrix of hieroglyphs, symbols and words – launches a voyage across the Atlantic that takes us via Eric Whitacre’s tender Sleep, sung by the BBC Singers, to the expansive, desolate sound-world of Copland’s Quiet City.
