The “Last Night of the Proms,” one of the biggest classical music parties of the summer, is tomorrow night with performances in London, Belfast and Glasgow.

One of the featured pieces during tomorrow’s concerts is George Lloyd’s “Trinidad March."  The HMS Trinidad ran Arctic convoys to Russia during WWII and was eventually destroyed by the enemy.  Lloyd served on that ship and was shattered by his experience.  If you missed the BBC story on Lloyd and his recovery listen here.  Get the scoop on all  of tomorrow’s Prom performances and listen online here.
