Prom 75 is the final celebration of the Proms season, the Last Night of the Proms brings a party atmosphere to the Royal Albert Hall with many prommers turning up with outlandish outfits and flags. The concert is an intriguing mix of the old and the new with plenty of well-known soloists who often enter into the party spirit. Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez is the star soloist in a Last Night that also showcases a hand-picked selection of young singers in Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music.
