BBC Proms

Every summer, London plays host to the world's largest classical music festival, the BBC Proms. Featuring performances from presitigious ensembles from around the world, the Proms are always a delight for classical fans. Every night of the week in London, there's another wonderful concert that people come from all over to hear. Well, here's a big piece of news: for the first time, we're able to bring you a live stream of a Proms concert every single day of the festival — now through early September. We'll also be broadcasting select concerts on the air on Classical MPR starting in August. For a complete schedule of the Proms, visit the BBC's official Proms page.
