A Night at the Proms at the Isabel
Anglophiles, it’s time to warm up your vocal chords and unfurl your Union Jacks: the Queen’s School of Music is holding its first ‘proms’ concert at the Isabel and you’re invited.
A playful musical tribute to English music and culture, A Night at the Proms...Then Off to the Music Hall, will see students, faculty and alumni from the Queen’s School of Music taking on popular British tunes as part of a fundraising concert at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.
The evening will also feature guest performer Mark Dubois, one of the country’s most renowned lyric tenors.
The ‘Proms’ are a series of concerts held every summer at Royal Albert Hall in London, England. The musical series traditionally concludes with a popular concert called “The Last Night at the Proms”, which is built around showcasing patriotic British music. Audience members are famous for using the concerts as an opportunity to display their national pride, carrying flags and wearing patriotic clothing, and for lending their voices to the evening.
That’s the spirit the concert’s organizers hope to capture at the Isabel.
