First Night of the Proms

Last Friday, the BBC Proms got underway in London. We're going to be bringing you lots of music from the Proms--in fact, today's Performance Today will include some Elgar from that First Night of the Proms. (That's not to be confused with Last Night of the Proms, which also includes Elgar, and which we'll broadcast live.)

The Proms website is abundant and diverse, to say the least. Case in point: this page devoted to the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.
