Date: Saturday 30th June 2018
Location: Ampthill Great Park
Ampthill Park Proms is back as part of the Ampthill Festival and on the 30th June we will be going wild and celebrating as it is our 10th!
Each year we have looked to build on our success and this year we are stepping it up again.
Hosting duties for the night and our West End star is the amazing Mazz Murray. She played the “Killer Queen” in We Will Rock You and Tanya in “Mamma Mia! This year she has recorded her first solo album “Midnight Mazz” at the world famous Abbey Road Studios and which is due for release very soon.
The finale each year is the traditional part of the night with classics from the “Last Night of the Proms” culminating in magnificent fireworks. We have a great guest for this part of the event, a big welcome back to Bonaventura Bottone. A Tenor with an international reputation who has performed in all the best opera and concert venues around the world, and of course he has been our guest twice before, stealing the show with sparkling Arias.
Mazz and Bon will both be performing with the amazing Ampthill Concert Orchestra and we also welcome back the Ampthill Town Band and the hugely talent youngsters of Redborne Jazz Band. One of the unique aspects of Ampthill Proms in the Park is the fact that the majority of these musicians are local and are passionate about the music and performing to their best ability and really enjoying the opportunity. We are always looking to improve year on year and as this is our 10th you can be sure that we will be playing favourites from past Proms and some special new music.
All this and a few extra surprises takes place in the beautiful setting of the natural bowl of Ampthill Great Park. Come along and celebrate our 10th Ampthill Park Proms with us and enjoy great music, while you have your picnic and a few drinks.
