Christine Anu is coming to Williamstown as this year’s special guest for the 16th Last Night of the Proms. Christine Anu is one of Australia’s most successful Indigenous performers. Christine is a multi-award winning recording artist and has made widely-acclaimed appearances in major films such as Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge, The Matrix Reloaded and Dating the Enemy. Christine has also performed at many momentous events, including the Sydney 2000 Olympics Closing Ceremony. She was also bestowed the honour of flicking the switch to launch National Indigenous Television in Australia.
The concert will also feature the combined talents of the Western Region Concert Band, SingWest and Rosa McCarty.
Modelled on the famous Last Night of the Proms held annually in England, this event will feature popular classics followed by the ‘traditional series’ of British patriotic pieces such as Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 (Land of Hope and Glory); Fantasy on British Sea Songs; Arne’s Rule, Britannia! and Parry’s Jerusalem.
Prommers (the name given to people that attend Proms concerts) join in by dressing up, waving flags, singing along, making noise and having a great time.
A very popular event, this is the 16th year that Proms has been held in Williamstown. One night only!
