This is not the John Wilson Orchestra, one of the BBC's , but he is conducting so thought I'd post a heads up.

Shame there isn't the usual one from John this year.

I watched it Helen and mostly enjoyed it. I noticed that JW had imported two players from his regular orchestra i.e. drummer Matt Skelton and saxophonist Howard McGill.

I too would like to have seen a Prom with his own orchestra but I expect he will do that next year. I guess he had to recognise the Bernstein centenary this time.

I think this was the first one of John Wilson's Proms that I didn't enjoy. I recorded it but stopped watching not that far into it. I'm hoping the concert in December will be better!

Back to the Proms I did enjoy the young saxophonist Jess Gilham with her performance on Saturday. I'd never heard her before but I thought she was amazing.
