About This Show

Part of the BBC Proms.British composer Jon Hopkins – whose work has been nominated for Grammy, Mercury and Ivor Novello awards – makes his BBC Proms debut with a world premiere of a 22-minute psychedelic drone epic for orchestra, choir and piano. Alongside this are reinterpretations of pieces from three of his critically acclaimed albums – Immunity, Singularity and Music for Psychedelic Therapy – re-imagined to form what Hopkins calls a ‘group sonic meditation for 5,000 people’. A collaboration with the BBC Singers, BBC Symphony Orchestra and Creative Artist-in-Association Jules Buckley, this atmospheric Prom focuses on the meditative and emotional side of Hopkins’s musical output, leading you on a powerfully immersive journey.
