In a tradition dating back to 1895, hear classical music from the Royal Albert Hall.
Every summer, London's famed Royal Albert Hall plays host to the BBC Proms, a festival that aims to "bring the best classical music to the widest possible audience." From the first public concert in August 1895, the Proms, whose name is short for the informal, accessible Promenade concerts that were popular in France and in the UK, has maintained founder-conductor Henry Wood's vision. Now, travel to London with Classical Minnesota Public Radio program director Julie Amacher for this four-week series from the BBC Proms.
