30/31 July:
Music for Royal Occasions

In the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year the BBC Concert Orchestra
and BBC Singers present a celebration of music and royalty in
all its splendour: from the music of the Tudor court to the
21st century, by way of Handel’s majestic Coronation Anthem,
Elgar's ever-popular Pomp and Circumstance March, choral music
by the current Master of the Queen’s Music Judith Weir and a
specially commissioned new work by Cheryl Frances-Hoad.

6/7 August:
Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra

The Proms welcomes the newly formed Ukrainian Freedom
Orchestra who come to London as part of a tour of Europe and
the USA. The orchestra, led by the Canadian-born conductor
Keri-Lynn Wilson, is composed of Ukrainian players from a
dozen orchestras in both their besieged country and elsewhere
in Europe. They will be joined by two leading Ukrainian
soloists for a concert that showcases the artistry and
resilience of Ukrainian musicians.  The concert programme
reflects the current situation through 19th-century works:
Russian occupation of Poland prevented Chopin from returning
to his homeland and Beethoven’s Fidelio celebrates the triumph
of love and freedom over injustice.

13/14 August:
Gaming Prom

This year, the Proms dips its toes for the first time into the
vast ocean that is video games music. Although written
originally for the small screen, games music has long been a
success in the concert hall too. 1990s classics from the
Japanese masters of the form Koji Kondo and Nobuo Uematsu
regularly sell out large venues, Austin Wintory’s
Grammy-nominated Journey has now become a fully-fledged
symphonic poem as has Hildur Guðnadóttir’s and Sam Slater’s
recent score for Battlefield 2042. The selection of games
music for this Prom is curated by the young British conductor
Robert Ames noted for his pursuit of fruitful exchanges
between the classical tradition and contemporary music.

The programmes to be
broadcast 20/21 and 27/28 August have not yet been announced.
