The John Wilson Orchestra and special guests present Oklahoma!
music / 8.00pm / BBC4
One of the highlights of the Proms season every year is the John Wilson Orchestra. The orchestra specialises in film music and since its Proms debut in 2009,
with A Celebration of Classic MGM Film Musicals, its concerts have included A Celebration of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Hooray for
Hollywood and The Broadway Sound, with soloists including Seth Macfarlane and Julian Ovenden. This year, the acclaimed orchestra brings its signature swagger to the music of Oklahoma!, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration. Belinda Lang, Nathaniel Hackmann and Scarlett Strallen join the musicians on stage.
