As classical music fans around the world get excited for the annual Proms concerts in London (July 18-September 13), BBC Music Magazine has partnered with the application Blippar to allow users to pose for a photo with the bust of Sir Henry Wood (1869-1944), the Proms' founding conductor. Here at Classical MPR, we had some fun posing with Sir Henry.
If you'd like to join the fun, download the free Blippar app (just search the app store on your smartphone or tablet) and use it to scan the cover of the magazine's July issue; an image of the cover is also available here. Send your photo to email@example.com if you'd like it included in a future post on our site!
Listen in later this summer as Classical MPR broadcasts numerous performances from the Proms.
