Great British Proms Spectacular, August 21; Noughties Popfest, August 22, both Castle Howard
12:41pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in Music news and reviews
POMP and circumstance return to the lawns of Castle Howard on Saturday with the annual Great British Proms Spectacular.
Jae Alexander will lead the English National Orchestra in a celebration of the best of British music, with a rousing finale of traditional Proms classics, including Rule Britannia, Jerusalem, and Elgar’s Pomp & Circumstance March no 1.
There will be special appearances by the Military Wags Choir and male vocal harmony group The Overtones, while guest soprano Janet Mooney will perform popular arias and Proms classics.
All this plus picnic on the lawn at 5pm before the concert programme begins at 6.30pm – and, of course, a spectacular fireworks display, choreographed to music, as darkness falls.
The mood changes on Sunday evening at Castle Howard for the Noughties Popfest, billed as “North Yorkshire’s biggest pop concert of summer 2013”.
The line-up of bands from the hit TV show The Big Reunion who will be performing from 5pm to 10.15 pm include SClub Reunion, Atomic Kitten, Blue, 5ive and 911, plus many more.
