Last Night of the Proms in Takapuna

All the pomp and ceremony of The Last Night of the Proms came to Takapuna for a rousing celebration of British culture. The Bruce Mason Centre was resplendent in red, white and blue as Union Jacks, balloons, streamers and fancy dress costumes brought colour to the sounds of Auckland Symphony Orchestra's music at the Auckland Live event. Crowds joined the Stellar Singers and Paradisum Choir in renditions of traditional British songs, from Land of Hope & Glory and Jerusalem, through to modern classics such as Bohemian Rhapsody by Freddie Mercury and Petula Clark's Downtown. Shore conductor Peter Thomas entertained excellently, as did soloists Sarah Court, Clare Hood and the young Milford School Dancers.
