CASTLE Howard Estate and LPH Concerts have announced the acts for this year’s Prom concert.
The confirmed guest soloists will be Classical Brit award winners Blake.
Renowned for performing classical and pop songs in harmony vocal arrangements, Blake comprises three young men who enthral fans the world over .
With more than a million albums sold, number one hits in 10 countries and nearly 150 TV appearances around the globe, Blake continue to build their reputation as one of today’s most eclectic and exciting classical “crossover” groups.
Joining Blake will be soprano Joanna Forest, whose debut album Stars Are Rising went straight to number one in the classical charts when it was released earlier this year.
Joanna is said to be one of the most exciting new British sopranos in the UK right now.
Blake said: “We are delighted to be performing at Castle Howard this summer; it’s a beautiful venue with the most stunning backdrop.
“This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary together and we look forward to greeting fans old and new, at what is set to be a night to remember.”

“Now in its 27th year, it is a firm favourite in our events calendar and an evening not to be missed.
