BBC PROMS The Song of the Night

Music, Classical and opera

BBC National Chorus of Wales, BBC Symphony Chorus, BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Thomas Søndergård, with Michael Weinius (tenor).

Stenhammar: 'Excelsior!'

Szymanowski: Symphony No 3 ('The Song of the Night') – A journey from dusk to dawn and on into the night

R Strauss: 'An Alpine Symphony'

(Note: in the Royal College of Music at 5pm, a Proms Plus Family event. Join Rachel Leach on an epic climb up an Alpine mountain, from twilight to nightfall with every tiny detail described along the way. Free – part of a series of free family-friendly introductory workshops which take place before six specially selected Proms concerts.)

(Note: in the RAH at 9.20pm, a Prom Plus Late event. If you don’t want your evening to end with the last notes of the main concert, then the post-concert Proms Plus Late is for you. Relax with a drink and enjoy the informal post-Prom music and poetry from emerging young talent. Space is limited and priority will be given to audience members from the main evening’s Prom. Free)
