Last Night of the Proms
So the BBC has a plan in place to broadcast the famous Last Night of the Proms live. That'll take place on September 12, 2009. In the Bay Area, or at least the East Bay, we're not quite getting the concert live. Instead, the Elmwood, on College near Ashby, in Berkeley, will have the program on Saturday, September 19, at 11:30 a.m. If you want tickets, buy them on line at the Elmwood's web site. $18, $15 for seniors, plus $3.50 handling charge per ticket (grrr); they'll be held at will call.
