The Proms comes to Gibraltar

The Gibraltar Philharmonic Society and Turicum Private Bank will present the first ever ‘Gibraltar Proms’ at the Alameda Open Air Theatre on May 23.

The Gibraltar Turicum Proms offers an informal environment for audiences of all ages to enjoy a chamber orchestra concert in a more relaxed and accessible atmosphere.

For 20 years the Gibraltar Philharmonic Society has been bringing the highest quality of music to audiences in Gibraltar.

A fundamental part of the Society’s mission is to offer the opportunity to engage with and experience music through specially tailored and distinct strands of activity.
