A gathering of close to 8,000 music lovers, a great many bearing Union Flags, assembled close to the mouth of the Lagan for a triumphant Last Night of the Proms on Saturday.
The crowds at Titanic Slipways in Belfast cheered and waved throughout the event, broadcast live on the BBC during the evening.
It was the second time the Titanic Quarter has hosted the event, called the Proms in the Park, which featured a raft of home-grown performers and the Ulster Orchestra too.
As the camera cut between scenes of jubilant crowds in Belfast and the London-based event, the broadcast included rapturous renditions of the hymn Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory, and an arrangements of the national anthem by composer Benjamin Britten.
Scotland and Wales were also hosting live events too, as part of what has been termed “the world’s largest classical music festival”.
The Belfast live event featured the Ulster Orchestra, under the baton of David Brophy, and an array of international and local talent performing against the dramatic backdrop of the Titanic Belfast building.
Among those in concert were superstar mezzo soprano Katherine Jenkins, Londonderry-born world renowned singer/songwriter Phil Coulter, Lithuanian accordion player Martynas, who recently topped the Classical Music Album Chart, and virtuoso violinist Chloe Hanslip.
The concert also featured an exclusive preview of “Heartbeat of Home” – the new song and dance spectacular by the creators of Riverdance, which is due for its world premiere in Dublin next month.
BBC Northern Ireland’s Noel Thompson and Claire McCollum presented the concert.
