The town of Schwerin in the province of Mecklenburg has a Proms season. Who knew?

Now we do because “MeckProms” is going, in its own slogan “Very British”, with music by ‘Edward Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten, Frederick Loewe (sic), Leroy Anderson (double-sic) and more.

See you there on Sunday, July 19, 2015, 11am in the baroque park in front of Schloss Bothmer in Klütz. Bring a picnic basket. Don’t forget your umlaut.

  • Peter Phillips says:

    Schwerin used to have a professional symphony orchestra. Not any more it doesn’t. So who will play at these “Very British” Proms? Could be that they’re playing more British music than the Albert Hall series. (I’m fed up with the endless trails on R3 before the series has even started.) Good luck to the Schwerin series. Nice city too, as I recall.

    Heidelberg is doing one too.
