The Fairfield Halls’ last week of performances before it undergoes a two-year, £30-million refit is to be marked with a rousing and dramatic concert from the one of the venue’s regular musical fund-raisers, The Last Night of the Croydon Proms, on Saturday, June 25.
And with the Croydon Symphony Orchestra on the programme playing the 1812 Overture, the concert hall could go out with a bang.
The annual Proms concert in Croydon, as pictured right, featuring conductor Darrell Davison, has raised more than £250,000 for charity this century alone, with local good causes among the recipients including the Special Care Baby Unit at Mayday Hospital, MacMillan Cancer Support and Lives Not Knives among those benefiting.
On the programme for this special event are performances of The Hallelujah Chorus, the finale to Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano Concerto, and the familiar set of stirring music which regularly features at the Proms.
With proceeds going to charity, and this being one of the last chances to attend a Fairfield Halls concert for two years, tickets – from £10 to £20 – are likely to be in high demand and are on sale now here.
