About this event

Renowned for choral music that is winning ever wider audiences, Eric Whitacre makes his Proms debut in a late-night showcase in which the BBC Singers join forces with his own vocal ensemble. His new work is inspired by the Olympic motto ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’ (Faster, Higher, Stronger).
