The idea of Night of the Proms was inspired by the British Last Night of the Proms. Many years ago, two Flemish students gave it their own twist by adding contemporary music and popular artists to the programme. The new and very original concept of ‘Classic meets Pop’ was born.
Night of the Proms became one of the most visited and most attractive musical events in Europe. It takes the audience on a journey through rousing and familiar classical repertoire, timeless pop classics, sing-along tunes and get-up-and-dance music, all of this backed by a mind-blowing visual and aural setting. The regular Night of the Proms orchestra Il Novecento conducted by Robert Groslot, a choir and an Electric Band lead by John ‘Music’ Miles play music from the last three centuries in such a joyful manner and with such verve, that everybody is carried away by their delightful performances. They also accompany international pop artists who enrapture the very lively audience with their greatest hits. Young and old uninhibitedly swing to the beat and at the end of the show thousands strike up Elgar’s ‘Land of Hope and Glory’.
