I went to hear this last night.
Pretty damned amazing....
Anyone else done any prom stuff this year?
Free concert in Shoreditch Park last weekend. Pretty good, fireworks too.
as live opposite the park.. but I didn't go myself.
I heard it was very good, tho..
I was only wearing a shirt and so was freezing, whereas everyone around me had blankets and sleeping bags.
but I saw the NY Philharmonic rehearsing when I was working over there last summer. They were incredible
and only 15 bucks. I also stumbled across a piano recital in the Met out there but I can't remember the pianists name. That had me boohooing it was so beautiful
just jam about after a proper, full fee paying show. I got to sit in the bar and listen to the guys jamm and it was exhilarating and intoxicating. And free. Highly recommended. (at the time I couldn't afford the $25 fee as was on a travel budget).
first time at the proms, thought it was really good. fantastic value for a fiver.
although I kept looking at people in boxes and being a tiny bit envious.
