The Last Night of the Proms
is one of the most famous musical events in the world, watched and listened to by millions. A unique event, it both celebrates British tradition and encapsulates the spirit of the BBC Proms, by featuring leading international artists in a truly all-embracing musical programme that introduces new works alongside much-loved classics.

Tradition dictates the last four works of the Last Night: Prommers lead the audience in a rousing rendition of Land of Hope and Glory, Rule, Britannia! and Jerusalem, and add their own special touches to the BBC Symphony Orchestra's virtuosic performance of Sir Henry Wood's Fantasia on British Sea Songs.

In 2000 Sir Andrew Davis made his final appearance at the helm of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He was joined on stage by the outstanding young American violinist Hilary Hahn and the internationally renowned British soprano Jane Eaglen. A world première was also given of a recently discovered piece of Shostakovich, to make this finale of the BBC Proms 2000 a memorable celebration of the world's greatest classical music festival.
