The summer festival of classical music at the Proms from July to September has long been covered by the BBC World Service. Even in these news-drive days they still fit some concerts into the schedules. We has tickets to attend a prom the other week and it was a fantastic experience.
The BBC Proms home page is at http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms and there is a fabulous archive at http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms/archive where you can even browse, season by season, way back to 1895.
For instance, on Tuesday 12 Aug 1975 Prom 19 from the Royal Albert Hall was:
Haydn - Symphony No. 96 in D major 'Miracle'.
Schumann - Concerto for Piano in A minor, Op 54.
Beethoven - Symphony No. 5 in C minor.
