The World Orchestra for Peace confirms BBC Proms Concert
The World Orchestra for Peace, founded by Georg Solti with players from major orchestras and inherited by Valery Gergiev, has confirmed that its scheduled concert at the BBC Proms on 20th July is proceeding as planned. Although TWOP had conditionally also planned to hold concerts in Munich and Aix-en-Provence, it was not able to go ahead with these plans due to lack of funding. We understand that TWOP gave notice to the festival organisers well in advance (by the end of March) that it would not be able to go ahead with the planning of these concerts.
