Colleen Hewett is coming to Williamstown as this year’s special guest for the 17th Last Night of the Proms.
Colleen Hewett is an Australian theatre and TV actress, and a popular singer. Her hit singles include “Superstar”, “Day by Day”, “Carry That Weight”, “Dreaming My Dreams with You” and “Wind Beneath My Wings”. At the TV Week King of Pop Awards, she was crowned Queen of Pop two years running.
The concert will also feature the combined talents of the Western Region Concert Band and SingWest. This year, Western Region Concert Band is celebrating 40 years of making music in the community.
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 17th year that Proms has been held in Williamstown. One night only!
