BBC Proms: World's largest classical music festival coming to the Waterfront Hall in Belfast

The world's largest classical music festival is set to kick off with a concert in Belfast next week. BBC Proms is coming to the Waterfront Hall on July 18 for an exquisite programme of chamber music.

The BBC Proms is the world’s largest classical music festival and is running for 8 weeks. For the first time ever the Proms is taking its successful chamber music series, established in 1996, across the UK, visiting all four nations.

The concert in Belfast will be the first one on the festival calendar.

Hebrides Ensemble (Sussie Ahlburg)

The Waterfront Hall said: "From the exquisitely realised miniature worlds of Maurice Ravel, to the sacred ecstasies of Messiaen and the bold, beautiful sonic architecture of his pupil Iannis Xenakis (who would have been 100 years old in 2022), these are sounds to ravish the ear and set the synapses sparking.

"The Hebrides Ensemble is a virtuoso chamber ensemble created especially to play music like this - up close and personal in Belfast’s Waterfront Studio."
