International Opera Star, Natasha Marsh, joins the York Proms Line Up

01 May 2017

In a slight change of line up we are thrilled to announce a new addition as our headline soprano for 2017; Natasha Marsh. Natasha is an international operatic soprano of high acclaim, who studied at the Royal College of Music. Natasha will be replacing our local soprano, Rebecca Newman, as the headline, but Rebecca will still be performing, just in a smaller role as she will be 8 months pregnant by then.
We also have a wonderful mezzo soprano from Liverpool called Danielle Thomas, as a support act. She will be replacing Tre Amici, who had to withdraw to the show due to other commitments taking priority.

Happy New Year from The York Proms

01 January 2017 

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish yu a happy new year.
Here at York Proms HQ we are working hard to ensure the first York Proms is a fantastic show, and something upon which to build for many years to come.
In only three weeks of the box office being open we have sold almost one quarter of the tickets we have allocated for this first concert. That is a phenonmenal success and shows just how keen the people of York, and her regular visitors, are to see an event like this take off.
We still have six months to go and our plans are not slowing down. With a York Proms Choir being launched later this month along with our Communty stage to showcase local talent, there will be lots of ways to get involved and lots of offshoot activities between now and July.
Dont' forget to book early to take advantage of the lower prices and to ensure you don't miss out on getting tickets. Book by the end of March to get the Early Bird price of £32.50 adults, £15 child and £85 family. Assuming there are tickets left, prices will increase on 1st April.
We look forward to seeing you next summer!
