BBC Proms In The Park
Vladimir & Anton will perform at this year's BBC Proms in the Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland on 10th September.
The concert is BBC Northern Ireland’s biggest outside broadcast event of the year. It offers both home-grown and international talent performing alongside the Ulster Orchestra under the baton of David Brophy.
Vladimir & Anton will join a star studded lineup including Broadway sensation John Owen-Jones and internationally acclaimed soprano Lesley Garrett.
BBC Proms in the Park in Northern Ireland is now in its 15th year and the event in Belfast is part of the UK-wide celebrations of the Last Night of the Proms, which radiates out from the Royal Albert Hall to embrace all four nations of the UK on Saturday 10 September, with Last Night events in Hyde Park, London, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The BBC Proms is the world’s largest classical music festival, with over 90 events in 2016 across eight weeks.
BBC Proms in the Park in Northern Ireland will be hosted by Noel Thompson and Claire McCollum. Extracts from the Belfast concert will be shown across the UK on BBC One and BBC Two on the night.
BBC Radio Ulster will also be live throughout the evening from the Titanic Slipways with presenter John Toal. Its coverage begins at 7.30pm.
Viewers will also be able to watch selected highlights from the Belfast concert online at www.bbc.co.uk/proms and on the BBC Red Button.
