Castle Howard Proms Announce Yorkshire’s Own Forever Tenors as Opening Act

Castle Howard Forever Tenors

Castle Howard Proms continues to be one of the favourite events in Yorkshire’s social calendar. This years event takes place in the magnificent gardens of Castle Howard on Saturday 21 August 2021.  And this spectacular classical concert is always a night to remember for the whole family.

As well as some great music, the event will include a Spitfire flyover and stunning lasers. Then, to round the Castle Howard Proms off, there’s a spectacular firework finale.

Castle Howard Proms has also added another new exciting opening act to the concert. Forever Tenors hail from the heart of Yorkshire and are an exciting new classical crossover duo. They’re made up of best friends Adam Lacey and Rob Durkin.  Together they bring a totally unique and fresh approach to the classical world by fusing a range of musical styles from pop, rock and classical, which they combine with their breath-taking vocals, their own musical arrangements and the package is completed by their infectious Yorkshire charm.

“A really special night”

Rob Durkin from Forever Tenors comments: “We can’t wait to be back on stage performing in front of a ‘real life’ audience and to get the opportunity to do this in such a beautiful setting on our home turf.  It’s going to be a really special night and we are honoured to open the show.”

The two very special guest soloists headlining the concert will be best-selling tenor Wynne Evans, an incredibly popular live performer and perhaps best known for his decade in the recurring role as Gio Compario in a series of TV adverts.

Wynne will also be joined by soprano, Victoria Joyce. Joyce is one of the UK’s most exciting performers and has starred in many prestigious opera productions.

The rousing musical accompaniment to the evening will be provided by the London Gala Orchestra under the baton of Stephen Bell. And the programme will also include popular classics and songs from musicals. You’ll also get all your flag-waving favourites from the Proms including Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Pomp & Circumstance No.1.
