Celebrate The Proms on Minute of Listening!
One of the biggest events in the musical calendar, The Proms are a prestigious season of concerts held every summer, showcasing the greatest composers and music from throughout history. Each year, London comes to life with the sound of modern and historic composers alike, with concerts in the Royal Albert Hall, Proms in the Park, and even events for children just like you.
Of course, sometimes it can be hard to get to hear all of this music, particularly if we live far away from London. Fortunately, many of the composers on the 2019 programme are featured on Minute of Listening, so we decided to bring The Proms to you!
Within, you’ll find a small but diverse collection of music by composers at The Proms this year: the genre-blending work of Errollyn Wallen, Mica Levi’s otherworldly Medicine, the riotous Rite of Spring by Stravinsky, vocal experiments in Jennifer Walshe’s Scintillia , and Tchaikovsky’s cheeky chimes on Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Explore our mini-collection here, and enjoy The Proms wherever you are!

Prom is short for promenade concert, a term which originally referred to outdoor concerts in London’s pleasure gardens, where the audience was free to stroll around while the orchestra was playing.
