Last Night of the Proms

Exactly one week ago tonight, Royal Albert Hall was filled with concert-goers there to attend the Last Night of the Proms. Each year, beginning in mid-July and running through mid-September, is the concert series I'd love to attend. I'm happy that I can see so much of it on YouTube. After all, the BBC videos are not available in my area. What's with the BBC?? Don't they know that Wisconsinites are interested in the Proms also?

If you're having trouble waking up this morning, this will definitely help! Hope you enjoy the following as much as I did.

What a grand display! That would be so fun to be at.

I was the Royal Albert Hall once in my life...saw Led Zeppelin there WAY back in 1969!

So THAT was what she was wearing. The guys on MPR didn't even attempt to describe it. :D

Wonder if they pay attention to the words in the song and really think about them...there are many different ways to be a slave. Kevin has a sign up in his office that I think about a lot...

Gold is the money of Kings
Silver is the money of Gentlemen
Barter is the money of Peasants
Debt is the money of Slaves

See you in a couple of weeks!

Love it. But the Last Night of the Proms always signals for me the start of autumn and is bittersweet because of that. I have to wait now for the next Grand National - when my spring starts!

You had me with the orchestra. You lost me with the singing. LOL

Thanks for sharing this. I've been to many events in Royal Albert Hall. The building itself is so beautiful that alone makes it worth the trip!

Yeah, the BBC aren't as open as what you think they are. The last night of the Proms brings out the nostalgia in people ... of all things that once made the country great ! Having said all that, it is a spectacle ... watching the performers (that's an outfit and a half !), the conductor and the antics of the audience. It is still a national institution in the calendar.
