PROMS

The Proms is an eight-week summer season of daily orchestral classical music concerts and other events held annually, predominantly in the Royal Albert Hall in central London. Founded in 1895, seasons now consist of concerts in Albert Hall, chamber music concerts at Cadogan Hall, additional Proms in the Park events across the UK on the Last Night of the Proms, and associated educational and children's events. The season is a significant event in British culture.  Prom is short for promenade concert, a term which originally referred to outdoor concerts in London's pleasure gardens, where the audience was free to stroll around while the orchestra was playing. In the context of the BBC Proms, promming refers to the use of the standing areas inside the hall (the Arena and Gallery) for which ticket prices are much lower than for the seating. Proms concert-goers, particularly those who stand, are sometimes referred to as "Prommers" or "Promenaders".

WELCOME!

The purpose of this blog is to share -with high school students mainly but also with music lovers in general- a series of educational resources to help them improve their knowledge of this beautiful art.
We are still working on it but, if you look at the menu on the left, you can find scores, a music theory web page or a Youtube channel with videos of all the instruments of the orchestra and others that, despite not being part of it, are equally important.
You can also find the link to BBC3 -the classical music radio station- or an application that we are sure you will love: Incredibox.
We will be adding more resources little by little.
We hope that this blog meets you expectations.
Enjoy it!
