The programme for the 2020 Proms, broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall, is here
Friday 28 August – Saturday 12 September
The current situation with COVID-19 means the Proms have been re-conceived in a different format, but with the same aim to fulfil founder-conductor Sir Henry Wood’s vision to ‘bring the greatest classical music to the widest possible audience’.
From Mitsuko Uchida and Sir Simon Rattle to Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Isata Kanneh-Mason, from Nicola Benedetti and Alina Ibragimova to Laura Marling, Esa-Pekka Salonen to Anoushka Shankar, there is something for everyone during these two weeks of live performances broadcast from the Hall. Please note that it will not be possible to have an audience at the Royal Albert Hall for these concerts, which will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
Each of the BBC Orchestras will perform live at the festival, and in long-standing Proms tradition, the BBC Symphony Orchestra will open and close the series culminating in a Last Night of the Proms. Led by the BBC SO’s Principal Guest Conductor, Dalia Stasevska, the 2020 Last Night of the Proms features soprano Golda Schultz.
In the meantime…
