Tune up and tune into BBC Proms 2018
From 13 July
The Beeb’s 2018 concert season kicks off with a treat: a free outdoor performance by electronicsymphonic composer Anna Meredith, whose Five Telegrams marks the centenary of World War One. Alas, tickets were snapped up almost as soon as the 12 July show was announced, so it’s back to the iplayer we go to catch Meredith in action – albeit not live. Five Telegrams will be screened on BBC Two and online after the First Night of the Proms on 13 July (8.15pm). Meanwhile, catch the trailer at bit.ly/telegrams453. Other Proms highlights include BBC Young Musician 40th Anniversary
(streamed live at 7pm on 15 July) and Grammy Award-winning internet sensation Jacob Collier (7.30pm 19 July; get a taste of his millennial easylistening on Youtube: bit.ly/jacob453). You can find the full BBC Proms schedule at bit.ly/proms453.
