Prepare yourself for some Pomp and Circumstance with the MSO’s Prom King, Sir Andrew Davis!

It doesn’t get more British than the Last Night of the Proms.

And it doesn’t get more Australian than legendary batsman, Sir Donald Bradman.

This July the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra brings the two together in a special Proms performance with renowned Australian soprano Greta Bradman, who will perform a work composed by her grandfather, the cricket king Sir Donald Bradman.

MSO Chief Conductor Sir Andrew Davis has conducted more Last Nights than any other in recent history, and brought the prestigious Proms to Melbourne in 2014. The MSO’s musings on the Motherland have marked a must-see night at Hamer Hall ever since!

In 2019, the MSO’s British best will be complemented by Australian soprano Greta Bradman, who joins Sir Andrew Davis for, among other operatic favourites, a touching performance of her grandfather, Sir Donald Bradman’s 1930 composition, Every Day is a Rainbow Day for Me. This special moment is sure to reveal a side to the legendary Australian batsman few would be familiar with, as an accomplished pianist and composer.

Returning after his triumphant turn in the MSO’s Season Opening Gala, Soloist in Residence Lu Siqing will also join the Proms party to perform Saint-Saens’ showstopper, Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso. A sweet shepherd song evolves into spectacular violin fireworks in this staple of the violin virtuoso’s repertoire. Lu Siqing is sure you have to stomping your feet in this feisty flamenco favourite.
