Minnesota Orchestra gives two concerts at the Proms

A big score for the home team - the Minnesota Orchestra plays not just one but TWO concerts this August in London as part of the BBC Proms.

This is a huge deal and boy, are we proud!

Classical MPR plans to carry the broadcasts live each day. These will be hosted by the BBC and Brian Newhouse.

Really looking forward to this.
Osmo Vankska is well known in the UK for his work with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orcestra.
