A spectacular evening of music in a beautiful setting is promised with a Last Night of the Proms concert.
The theme will be music from stage and screen including Dambusters, Mission Impossible and The Lion King as well as music by Gershwin and Ellington.
And the evening will of course end in true Proms style with Pomp and Circumstance, Fantasy on British Sea Songs, Jerusalem and plenty of patriotic flag waving and audience participation.
The Rotary Club of Towcester has been working hand in hand with Sponne School to present the concert at 7pm on Sunday February 7 at Whittlebury Hall near Towcester in a beautiful room with the capacity to seat up to 500 people.
The venue provides a professional and luxurious environment to hold the event and offers the students a fantastic public appearance experience, allowing them a real taste of performing live to a large and enthusiastic audience who are encouraged to dress up for the occasion.
Catherine Underwood, head of music and deputy head teacher at Sponne, has worked tirelessly with the Sponne School musicians and senior choir to present an outstanding evening of music, song and entertainment. There will be over 110 musicians on stage as the students are joined by Kidlington Concert Brass.
Tickets cost £17 and can be purchased from the box office, 01327 352851, by email firstname.lastname@example.org, online at www.towcester-rotary.org.uk/shop or from Colemans at 193 Watling Street in Towcester.
The Last Night of the Proms is one of the Rotary Club of Towcester’s key fund raising events of the year. Not only does the project allow the club to work closely with Sponne School but funds raised are divided equally between Sponne and the club.
