Stand by for a ‘Sound and Light’ extravaganza at this year’s annual Last Night of the Proms concert, presented as ever by the British Cultural and Heritage Association. Durban’s die-hard prommers can expect a bonanza event which will crackle and pop with an exuberance of fun! So get to The Playhouse Opera Theatre on Sunday 5 August at 3pm, to enjoy a profusion of sizzling classics, laced with novelty appeal all set to go with a bang!

Conductor Richard Cock, South Africa’s ‘Mr Music’, returns to the podium to crank up the wow factor as he leads the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, joined by the Durban Symphonic and Northwood Boys Choirs, and a line-up of soloists and support acts.  This year’s solo spots falls on soprano Hlengiwe Mkhwanazi and ten-year-old violinist, Nilashri Naidoo. And sharing the limelight are Proms stalwarts, the KZN Pipes and Drums, and Celtic Heartbeat, a.k.a dancers Samantha Wood and Melissa Wood Alberts.
