On Saturday 8 September, Sir Andrew Davis (pictured below), the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s Conductor Laureate, leads the orchestra, the audience in the Royal Albert Hall and those celebrating across the UK in a rousing finale to round-off eight weeks of extraordinary music-making.
This marks Sir Andrew’s 130th performance at the BBC Proms, 11 of which have been at the Last Night. Gerald Finley and Jess Gillam (main image) are the star soloists for this evening, which includes the music of Elgar, Parry and Stanford, as well as a new work by Roxanna Panufnik, who receives the coveted Last Night BBC commission.
