Preston Guild Hall will play host to a wonderful celebration of classical music and rousing Proms favourites to bring in the New Year. The beautiful music will be accompanied by a traditional welcoming in of the New Year at midnight and amazing indoor fireworks to ensure the event feels like a true celebration.
All those classic, rousing compositions from the Proms will be played and enjoyed by the audience at the Guild hall on 31st December. Everything from Ravel’s Bolra to the Toreador Song from Bizet’s Camren will be enjoyed alongside the moving Sleeping Beauty Waltz by Tchaikovsky. A Proms event simply isn’t the same without a little singalong too so visitors can expect to get themselves involved with renditions of Rule, Britaania, Nessun Dorma and Land of Hope and Glory.
John Pryce-Jones will be conducting the Manchester Concert Orchestra with tenor Mario Sofroniou and baritone James Cleverton providing the oral accompaniments. The event has become a classic in the Preston events calendar and is conveniently at the centrally located Guild Hall so if you’re visiting Preston for Christmas and New Year you can easily hop in your Easirent hire car and find a central parking space before enjoying the entertainment at Preston’s Last Night of the Proms.
The celebration brings together some of the world’s best recognised classical music with a traditional New Year’s welcome and the added bonus of amazing indoor fireworks so the party atmosphere is well and truly alive in the heart of Preston.
