The Royal Albert Hall's world-famous Proms season comes to a close with the spectacular Last Night of the Proms.

The usual mix of bombastic classics and flag-waving favourites will be present including Elgar'sPomp and Circumstance (of course), Parry's Jerusalem (naturally) and Arne's Rule Britannia -- it wouldn't be Last Night without those three!

Other pieces will include:

Lotta Wennakoski -- Flounce
Kodaly -- Budavari Te Deum
Sargent -- An Impression on a Windy Day
Sibelius -- Finlandia (choral version)
Wagner -- Tristan and Isolde (Prelude and Liebestod)
John Adams -- Lola Montez Does the Spider Dance
arr. Wood -- Fantasia on British Sea-Songs
Trad (arr. Thorpe Davie) -- Auld Lang Syne

The music will be performed by the sopranos Nina Stemme and Lucy Crowe, mezzo-soprano Christine Rice, tenor Ben Johnson and bass John Relyea. Sakari Oramo will conduct the BBC Singers and BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

The first half of the show will be shown live on BBC Two, and the second half will transfer to BBC One.

As well as working closely with the BBC, the BBC Symphony Orchestra plays regular concerts at the Barbican and is the principal orchestra of world-famous Proms Concerts, giving around a dozen performances each year, including the prestigious First and Last Nights.
