Aiming to repeat the unprecedented success of last year’s Proms in the Park, Milton Keynes City Orchestra has partnered again with The Parks Trust to present Proms in the Park 2014. Taking place in Campbell Park on Friday 15 August at 8pm this event promises an uplifting evening of classical favourites, relaxed picnics and a spectacular firework finale.

This stirring and patriotic concert will be performed by Milton Keynes City Orchestra and conducted by its founder Hilary Davan Wetton. The soloist and any special guests will be announced closer to the summer concert.

David Foster, Chief Executive at The Parks Trust, said: “This family-friendly event is becoming the highlight of the city’s events calendar. We are thrilled that our partnership with Milton Keynes City Orchestra allows us to provide a first class experience for music lovers in Milton Keynes.”

Marian Livingstone, Chair of Milton Keynes City Orchestra, said: “Proms in the Park has a great rousing party atmosphere and we’re working on an exciting programme that will bring everyone the classics they love to hear.”
