Proms on the Pier 2017

September 9, 2017 12:00 pm to September 10, 2017 5:00 pm


Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 September 2017

Guernsey Proms are a celebration of world-class orchestral and choral musical excellence and the patriotism, singing and cultural history of the Last Night of the Proms from the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The original aim of the 19th century Promenade Concerts (that became the BBC Proms) mirrors that of Guernsey’s Proms on the Pier: to present the widest range of music, performed to the highest standards, to large audiences.

The founder and originator of the Proms series was 19th century impresario Robert Newman who was also the manager of the newly built Queen’s Hall in London; the first home of the Proms concerts.  Newman wanted to reach a wider audience by offering popular programmes, adopting a less formal promenade arrangement and keeping ticket prices low. 

These are the same objectives that are the foundations of Proms on the Pier and Proms on the Bay in Guernsey.  Spectators and music enthusiasts will enjoy 2017 Proms on the Pier at no cost and will listen to and watch an evening of musical excellence.

More information on this fantastic event will be published during the spring of 2017.
