Category:Promenade concerts

English: Although the term Promenade Concert is normally associated today with the series of concerts founded in 1895 by Robert Newman and the conductor Henry Wood – a festival known today as the BBC Proms – the term originally referred to concerts in the pleasure gardens of London where the audience could stroll about while listening to the music (French se promener = to walk).
