HINCKLEY’S Hollycroft Park will come alive with the sound of music when the popular Proms in the Park concert returns on Saturday 4 September.
Organised by the Borough Council and Hinckley Round Table, Proms in the Park is returning by popular demand following a six year hiatus.
The free open air concert will feature performances from Leicester’s Bardi Wind Orchestra which has been making music for nearly 30 years and has raised thousands of pounds for both national and local charities at their annual high profile De Montfort Hall summer concerts.
Under the baton of Music Director David Calow, the Bardi Wind Orchestra will be performing a feast of well-known music from the Big Screen, including James Bond 007, Harry Potter, ET and Raiders together with The Big Country, Great Escape and Magnificent Seven.
Vocal Soloists Jenny Saunders and David Morris will also be joining the Orchestra in well-known standards such as Over the Rainbow and Come Fly with Me alongside My heart will go on and Nessun Dorma.
The concert ends in flag waving style with traditional Last Night of the Proms favourites including Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory.
The event will start at 5.30pm with the concert starting at 6.30pm. The event is due to finish at 9.00pm.
No booking is necessary and everyone is welcome.
