Last Night of the Proms, 2013

Having watched tonight's proceedings on TV - my Promming days are now behind me - I think that this could well have been the best Last Night ever.  Nigel Kennedy was tremendous, Joyce DiDonato was almost beyond words, and Marin Alsop took commanding charge of the whole affair and even succeeded in keeping all of the venues together in "You'll never walk alone."  Truly remarkable.


And our own BangorBalletBoy and Mrs BBB were spotted in great voice at the end .... after what I believe would have been a very busy day for both.  Well done!!

I thought Marin Alsop was super - and what an excellent speech too, about the importance of the arts.


My only gripe - again - was the absence of the Sea Songs. For me they are an integral part of the Last Night and even my teenage dd asked where they were. I wish the BBC would reinstate them and stop dropping them.
