About this event

BBC’s Proms in the Park returns to Swansea as part of the BBC’s wider Last Night of the Proms celebrations.

World famous baritone Bryn Terfel is headlining and will be joined by celebrated violinist, Jennifer Pike and singer-songwriter Casi.

In 2002, aged just 12, Jennifer became the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician and today she performs extensively as soloist with major orchestras worldwide.

Casi, from Bangor, has been collaborating with BBC Cymru Wales and Arts Council of Wales as part of the Horizons music project and her distinctive sound has garnered rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

Presenters Tim Rhys-Evans of Only Men Aloud fame and Josie d'Arby (BBC Cardiff Singer of the World and Songs of Praise) who hails from Newport, Monmouthshire complete the line-up for what promises to be a spectacular evening supported by the City and County of Swansea.

All three artists will perform with the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales, led by conductor Tecwyn Evans making his second Proms in the Park appearance.

This will be the first of two appearances this season by Bryn Terfel with the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales. On St David's Day 2015, the Welsh Opera superstar will lead St David's Hall, Cardiff in a celebration of Welsh music, at a special gala concert with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Families and all music lovers are invited to bring picnics, deck chairs and flags to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the celebrations in the stunning outdoor setting of Singleton Park.

Gates open 4.30pm
