The BBC Proms is a classical music festival held every summer at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and in recent years has explored new venue spaces through the innovative “Proms at ...” series of events. Its aim is to bring the best in classical music to the widest possible audience, which remains true to founder-conductor Henry Wood's original vision in 1895. The BBC took over the Proms in 1927 and began broadcasting the concerts with the aim of "truly democratising the message of the music, and making its beneficent effect universal."
“Proms” is short for promenade concerts — informal and inexpensive concerts with an opportunity for promenaders (“prommers”) to stand and listen.
Listeners can stream performances from the Proms online.
As part of his continuing commitment to social justice and the plight of the homeless, local composer Henry Mollicone will conduct two performances of his Beatitude Mass. Both concerts are free; donations will be gratefully accepted, and all proceeds will be directed to local organizations that provide support and services to the homeless in our communities.
