When you come to London in summer, find some time in your schedule to attend one of about 90 classical music concerts held during the classical music festival commonly known as The Proms or Promenade Concerts. The festival runs from June to September at the Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington. The venue holds 900 standing and over 5,000 seated visitors. You will receive a large amount of aesthetic pleasure for the reasonable price of £5. Two months of magical music end with a large outdoor final concert in Hyde Park. Classical music is believed to have healing properties. It can help to focus your mind on positive and productive thinking and develop your sense of beauty. The festival dates back to the late 19th century when a series of orchestra concerts were held under the guidance of Robert Newman who aimed at broadening the audience with a more casual atmosphere and affordable pricing.
