LINED UP FOR CASTLE HOWARD PROMS
The 2019 Castle Howard Proms take place on Saturday 3 August 2019. The soloist line up includes best-selling tenor Wynne Evans who will be joining North Yorkshire’s own operatic soprano, Sarah Fox for the North’s most prestigious al fresco Proms event.
Wynne Evans is a best-selling classical artist, with his debut album with Warner Music going straight to number one in the classical charts. His acclaimed performance in the 25th anniversary performance of The Phantom of the Opera, and appearances in a host of concerts at the Royal Opera House, English National Opera and Opera North have made him an incredibly popular live performer, whilst he is also well known for his decade in the recurring role as Gio Compario in a series of TV adverts.
Giggleswick born-and-bred Sarah Fox will be hitting the high notes in the concert. 2019 will be her first time at Castle Howard, but she is no stranger to the Proms, having performed in the BBC MGM Prom in 2009 and The Proms in 2011. Sarah has taken her vocal talents around the world, with leading operatic roles in Germany, Barcelona and Cincinnati.
The rousing musical accompaniment to the evening will be provided by the London Gala Orchestra under the baton of Stephen Bell, and the compère for the evening is Phil Seymour, who is both the master of ceremonies for World Snooker and World of Sport Wrestling.
Warm-up acts will also perform as the thousands of concert goers set up deckchairs, picnics and sometimes even dining tables with silver platters candelabra on the North Front lawns of the historic house, which gently slope down towards the lakeside-stage – a natural amphitheatre for the grand performance.
