BRITAIN’S favourite tenor Alfie Boe comes straight from the West End to Dundee this weekend to headline the Scottish finale to this year’s BBC Proms.

He will join the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in a spectacular event broadcast live from the Caird Hall, Dundee this Saturday.

Conducted by Stephen Bell, the Scottish Symphony Orchestra will lead this feast of music, introduced by Radio Scotland’s Kaye Adams and Jamie MacDougall.

Fabulous Scottish soprano Lisa Milne will be performing on the night as well as the young traditional musician of the year, Kristan Harvey.

The evening will also mark the return of the Dundee Proms Chorus led by the inspirational choir trainer Anna Flannagan,

Prior to rehearsals Anna said: “The orchestra and I were completely bowled over with the Chorus last year, their sound and their professionalism.

“I know that the wonderful Alfie Boe and Lisa Milne will both be knocked out by them this year.”

With the event expected to move to a different location next year, demand in Dundee and the surrounding area is bound to be high.

Tickets cost £10 each. Any tickets not sold in advance will be on sale on the night for £12.00 each.

After last year’s phenomenal success the event returns to the Caird Hall in Dundee and will be screened on BBC Two Scotland and across the UK on Red Button, bringing a Scottish flavour to the finale of what has become the world’s greatest music festival.

For those who can’t make it to Dundee, the first half of the event can be seen live on BBC Two Scotland from 7.30pm, schedules may vary.

Coverage can also be found on BBC Radio Scotland.

The Dundee Proms Chorus and the Caird Hall audience will also be featured live on the BBC One coverage from the Royal Albert Hall during the nationwide sing along.
