ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the 20th century music presented at the Prom Concert in Great Britain during the World War II, an uncharacteristic time when the need of audiences were seen as paramount. It stresses the educational aim of the prom, which enables general audiences from all kinds of backgrounds and levels of musical experiences to become familiar with and be inspired by orchestral music. It emphasizes that the prom was a platform for the celebration of traditions that marked its annual ritual of revisiting standard orchestral repertory. Moreover, it notes that the transmission of British music at the promenade shows a similar awareness of modern life and art.
