It's back! Queensland Symphony Orchestra's Last Night of the Proms should be a Don't-Miss Date on your calendar. Modelled after the famous Proms Festival in London, our Last Night of the Proms concerts feature a mix of old and new short classical works, all leading up to a glorious flag-waving, sing-a-long finale of patriotic British music.

For these concerts, Britannia will rule the waves, dance the hornpipe and offer us all a vision of a Land of Hope and Glory. Whether you're as British as a cup of tea, or just like a fun concert, you'll find something to enjoy in our Proms homage.
