July and August 2014: Crouch End Festival Chorus is back at the Royal Albert Hall for two BBC Prom concerts this summer - and they couldn't be more different.
Sunday 20 July will see a new venture for the annual music festival: the BBC Sport Prom. This lighthearted concert will feature TV and radio sports themes from shows such as Match of the Day, Wimbledon and Test Match Special. During the performance, the voices of CEFC will soar in Carl Orff's O Fortuna and beloved sports anthems We are the Champions and You'll Never Walk Alone. Catch it on Radio 5 Live at 10.30am on 20 July.
The chorus will return on Monday 18 August, joining the BBC Symphony Chorus and Orchestra for Rachmaninov's The Bells, in an all-Russian programme also featuring the Stravinsky violin concerto and Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.
The seats sold out long in advance for this vibrant evening of late-Romantic music, but as always with the BBC Proms, up to 1,400 promming (standing) tickets will be available on the day, and the concert will also be broadcast on Radio 3.
