A Basel Night at the Proms
Stadtcasino Basel, 05|11|2022

A first for Switzerland, and a first for Basel—A Basel Night at the Proms was a resounding success, selling out the Stadtcasino Basel 5 weeks
in advance!

Inspired by the legendary BBC Proms Festival, and the `Last Night´ at London’s Royal Albert Hall, we united Swiss and international artists
in a grand celebration of music, arts, and culture.

Ein Gala Event nach dem Vorbild von Londons legendärer `The Last Night of the Proms´ in der Royal Albert Hall. Das erstmalig stattfindende Event
in Basel umfasste ein buntes Programm für Orchester, Chor und Solisten.
