An Evening at the Proms

Sunday May 14, 2017, at 3 pm

Burlington Performing Arts Centre

 

“Proms is short for promenade concert, a term which originally referred to outdoor concerts in London’s pleasure gardens. During these concerts the audience was free to stroll while the orchestra was playing usually a lighter and more popular repertoire. This season we will have star of the stage and television, Robert Pilon & Friends. Robert has been the lead in the Toronto productions of The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables. This programme features songs from musicals across the globe as well as some amazing standards. Please join us in celebrating this SOTB tradition.” – Maestro Claudio Vena
