It is some years since Morecambe audiences have had the chance to experience a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ concert. So it is with great pleasure that the PCO is able to present such a concert with the help of Carnforth and District Choral Society, soprano soloist Rowena Thornton and bass soloist Brian Lancaster. As well as the traditional favourites, there will be popular operatic choruses, solos and duets, and a special folk-song arrangement by our own, Julian Davies. Not to be missed!
