two nights at the proms in 2013

On Tuesday 6 August 2013 we went to the Proms - Bruch Violin Concerto, Korngold Symphony in F sharp. The following week, on Monday 12 August, we went to the Proms again - Holst Indra, Khan sitar concerto, Vaughan Williams London Symphony. Both times we sat in the sixth row of the choir; the second time we were there also with Laura and Andrew & Maria. I enjoyed both concerts; the sitar concerto in particular was right up my street. I also really enjoy sitting in the choir seats; so much closer to the performers, a more interesting view, and no particular problem of sound balance noticeable to my amateur ears.
