The London-based Proms are celebrating their 120th year and the world's biggest classical music festival continues to draw in crowds by mixing top performers with accessible ticket prices.Staged at the 5,500-capacity Royal Albert Hall, the circular, domed 1870s Italianate masterpiece in London, the eight-week series of concerts are firmly entrenched in the British cultural landscape.Christian Holt, a Londoner, has been Promming around 20 times, drawn by the "variety and quality" of the concerts, plus the cheap tickets on the day of the concerts.The Proms are back on BBC World Service radio after a five-year break, with six programs mixing performances with themes and topics from the concert series.On Aug. 10, the 120th anniversary of the Proms first concert, British star violinist Nicola Benedetti performed Erich Wolfgang Korngold's "Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35" (1945).
