Prom 40: 6 Music PromCerys Matthews, Laura Marling and punk veterans The Stranglers - whose classics No More Heroes and Golden Brown were first performed more than 30 years ago - join the London Sinfonietta for the first ever 6 Music Prom, a Late Night Prom put together by BBC Radio 6 Music radio presenter Steve Lamacq. The programme includes 20th century classics by John Adams, Berio and Varese, plus a live remix mash-up by composer Anna Meredith who came to public attention through her 2008 work for the BBC Last Night of the Proms which was broadcast to 40 million people. The 6 Music Prom is one of two Proms, along with the first Urban Classic Prom, which are bringing the world famous classical music festival to a wider - and younger - audience.
