Excitement is mounting for Shropshire’s Proms and Prosecco in the Park as over 1,250 tickets have been sold with 3 weeks to go to the event at Chetwynd Deer Park!
We've been liaising with all the performers at the event and with so much wonderful music to fit in, we've added an extra hour of music, with performances now starting at 3pm, rather than 4pm.
Proms & Prosecco in the Park is being headlined by Soprano Emily Haig, who has been seen by millions of people singing the National Anthem at the FA Cup Final, Wembley, and the British F1 Grand Prix, Silverstone.
We are bringing a talented variety of performers to a spectacular parkland setting and the public have responded to that. Having looked at the strength of the line-up and consulted the artists, we have decided to add an extra hour to the schedule.
Proms and Prosecco in the Park will now run for six-hours, from 3pm until 9pm, giving extra time for each of the artists to perform. Gates open at 2pm to allow time to lay out the picnic blankets, set up the table chairs and candleabras and settle in for a wonderful afternoon and evening.
The line-up includes operatic tenor Jack Foley who has performed with The Royal Opera, Covent Garden Carl Rosa Opera Company and Grange Park Opera, as well as starring in musicals across Britain and internationally.
Also taking to the stage will be up and coming singing star Alexandra Jayne, from nearby Wheaton Aston, pianist and musical director David Lane, who has a 40-year career in national tours and well-known West End musicals, a string quartet from the Camerata of London Chamber Orchestra, Amadeus Brass Quintet from the world's leading training orchestra, the award-winning Prima Wind Quintet from Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music and the Cosford Military Wives Choir.
Emily Haig will close the event with a repertoire of anthemic favourites including World in Union and Jerusalem and will round-off her performance with a rousing rendition of Land of Hope and Glory, which has become synonymous with the Proms. Look out for some of our other performers joining Emily for this special finale.
Gates open on 9 September at 2pm and the live music will start at 3pm and finish at 9pm.
