Whether you’re a longtime fan of classical music, an enthusiastic Anglophile or simply want to experience the iconic Last Night of the Proms for yourself, you won’t want to miss the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra as they take to the stage in Launceston this weekend.
Taking inspiration from London’s famous Proms – a series of summer concerts performed in the capital city – the Tasmanian version of the Last Night of the Proms is a celebration of all that is great about Britain.
Hosted by presenter Guy Noble, the event will feature the vocal talents of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, as well as soprano Jacqueline Porter and baritone Stuart Maunder.
Billed as an evening of passion and patriotism, guests at the Last Night of the Proms will be treated to some of the famous pieces of music that featured in last year’s royal wedding, as well as some of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most well-known songs, including I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General from The Pirates of Penzance.
The Last Night of the Proms will be performed at Launceston’s Albert Hall on Saturday April 28 at 7:30pm.
