The first ever free main-evening Prom celebrates the bicentenary of the Royal Philharmonic Society with a new work by Mark-Anthony Turnage and a performance of the society’s most famous commission for choir and orchestra – Beethoven’s boundary-breaking ‘Choral’ Symphony. Youth choirs from the UK and Ireland, including from Derry-Londonderry, UK City of Culture 2013, join the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and principal conductor Vasily Petrenko.
