The BBC Proms are now well underway, showcasing a remarkably broad repertoire in a particularly challenging year for classical music.

With “Prommers” tickets costing only £7.12 on the day, there are plenty of chances to get your live music fix in person at the Royal Albert Hall. Performers range from stalwarts such as BBC Symphony Orchestra to relative newcomers like Ghanaian-American singer-songwriter Moses Sumney. There really is something for everyone.
