About This Event

Dalia Stasevska leads a First Night featuring Vaughan Williams’s ravishing Serenade to Music – written to celebrate Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood’s 50 years on the podium and premiered by him at his jubilee concert in the Royal Albert Hall in 1938. Sir James MacMillan offers a new companion piece to the Serenade and Poulenc’s Organ Concerto is a piquant foil, showcasing the instrument in a vivid play of light and shade.

Full programme details to be announced.
