First Night of the Proms

Posted at 2:36 PM on July 13, 2007 by Rex Levang

The abundance that is the BBC Proms Festival starts tonight in London. Though we won't bring you the First Night live, look for MPR to be bringing you plenty of highlights from the Proms as the summer unfolds, including the Last Night of the Proms, and an 80th birthday for conductor Kurt Masur in which he appears with not one but two orchestras.
