Happy St. George's Day!

In honor of St. George's Day I'm posting a video of the last night of the Proms from 2009.  Call me an Anglophile, call me a wannabe, call me a sap - and yes, maybe I am all of those things - but it makes my heart swell every time I watch it.  Hopefully I'll be in Hyde Park to participate this year!  (For those of you who don't know, closing the Proms with Jerusalem is a time-honored tradition, and everyone sings along and waves flags and generally gets into the patriotic spirit of the thing.  You can read more about the last night of the Proms at Wikipedia.)


  1. I'll be there in Hyde Park, so you'd best be!

  2. Or you can read my 15 page ethnomusicology term paper on the last night of the :)


I love reading your thoughts and suggestions! Please do leave a comment so we can get to know each other better.
