KSPB is expanding its BBC Proms programming this summer. In addition to the seven Saturday morning highlight programs on the BBC World Service, we are airing nine full two-hour concerts from APM’s SymphonyCast on Monday evenings.
The BBC Proms is “the world’s greatest classical music festival,” but its repertoire goes beyond classical. This year’s programs, for example, include world music and jazz. They also include celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Proms founder and conductor, Sir Henry Wood.
