I look at the running order for Prom # 2 and a cheeky grin spreads across my face as I think about a person I know who’ll almost certainly be dismissing this evening’s concert on the grounds it’s not “serious” enough.
To deny any composer the opportunity to have their creations heard from the platform at the Royal Albert Hall is a crime.
So, ladies and gentlemen, sit back and listen to such classic film music as the march from Bridge On The River Kwai, John William’s Harry’s Wondrous World from Harry Potter and, something I’m really looking forward to, a medley of Carry On music. It’s high time the music from the Carry On films got the Proms stamp of approval.
