Interview with Andrew Wyke Producer of Warwick Castle Proms 2014

Written by on July 6, 2014

On Friday, 6 June the nation was captivated by the commemorations of the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and this year’s Summer Proms concert at Warwick Castle on Saturday, 12 July will pay tribute to the heroes of D-Day with a special selection of music, narration and iconic images on the big screen.

Producer Andrew Wyke commented: “This is a very special anniversary as there are now so few D-Day veterans still with us and we wanted to commemorate this at the Summer Proms concert at Warwick this year. “

With the 70-piece City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra performing on stage the D-Day commemoration section will feature beautiful classics including Hymn To The Fallen from the movie Saving Private Ryan; the theme from Band Of Brothers and more.

The D-Day section will start in spectacular style with an aerial display by an original World War II Spitfire, the aircraft which spearheaded the D-Day landings and helped ensure aerial supremacy.

Pilot Peter Teichman commented: “It is an honour to be flying for this special commemoration I’m sure it will be a very emotional for both myself and the audience.”

The evening promises to be spectacular showcasing superb music with all the Proms favourites for the flag-waving finale, and incredible fireworks. So gather friends and family, prepare picnics and join in the festivities for an evening of unrivalled entertainment.

Tickets are on sale now from at just £36 for adults and £10 for children.
