Belfast gets Proms in the Park
Having last happened in the city of Belfast back in 2008, the occasion is set to occur in the surrounds of the Titanic Slipways for 2012.
Among those involved will be the Ulster Orchestra , Eimear McGeown (the flute player) and the singers Hayley Westenra and Noah Stewart, according to the BBC.
"This event is one of the most prestigious and large-scale events we undertake each year. Music lovers can be assured of a very special evening of music and celebration from an eclectic line-up of local and international talent - all set against the stunning backdrop of Titanic Belfast," commented BBC Northern Ireland's Peter Johnston.
One thing Proms in the Park in Northern Ireland is apparently set to do is mark 100 years since the Titanic sank – an anniversary which happened earlier this year, in April – using music.
