Robert Groslot – our conductor since 1991 – celebrates his 65th birthday today. Happy birthday!
Did you know maestro Groslot conducted 899 shows in total at Night of the Proms? At this year’s tour in Germany and Luxembourg, he passes the baton to maestra Alexandra Arrieche. You might know Alexandra as the new conductor of the show in Belgium (2015), The Netherlands (2015), Poland (2016) and Sweden (2016). Because he decided to retire from Night of the Proms, we want to thank Robert for his passion, dedication and leadership which characterizes him as conductor of Il Novecento orchestra an numerous pop stars on our show. We wish you continued success in your current and future artistic projects as a musician, composer, painter, filmmaker or director, Robert!
