Proms 2022: Your Guide Through the Season
Back with a Bang!
Pick of the Classics
From Mozart and Beethoven to Ravel and Prokofiev, this Proms season is jam-packed full of classic composers and repertoire. With performances from some of the greatest orchestras in the world, a night at the Proms is the ultimate concert experience.
This season we’ve expanded the number of family-friendly concerts at the Proms. Come on a Journey into the Ocean with your favourite CBeebies presenters, experience the BBC’s Natural History Unit at our first ever Earth Prom, or chose between two Relaxed Proms, designed to suit individuals or groups who feel more comfortable attending concerts in a relaxed environment.
Something a Bit Different …
This season offers a huge variety of styles and performers, from the Indian classical music of sarod-player Amjad Ali Khan to the brassy overtures of the Welsh-based Tredegar Band. Perhaps gaming music is your thing – or the patchwork sonorities of cult band Public Service Broadcasting. It’s all here at the Proms!
As well as showcasing the very best of UK orchestras, the Proms is a platform for global music-making. This season, for the first time in two years, we invite an array of international ensembles to the Royal Albert Hall. Make sure you catch this rare opportunity to hear some of the best names on the international stage.
Every season the Proms plays host to some of the biggest names in music. This year is no different. Whether it’s Sir Simon Rattle, Nicola Benedetti or Sheku Kanneh-Mason, you can catch your favourite artists on the greatest stage of all.
Across the UK
For the first time in Proms history we’ll be bringing concerts to every UK nation. Battersea, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool and Truro will all be raising the Proms banner this summer as part of our annual chamber concert season.
