Cowichan’s Daniell has Last Night of the Proms

Valley soprano Eve Daniell topped off an exciting year by singing at the Last Night of the Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall

Valley soprano Eve Daniell, who is studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London, topped off an exciting year by singing at the Last Night of the Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Sept. 10.

Alerted to the event, friends were delighted, commenting on Facebook both before and after the event.

According to her mom, Trisha Daniell, they managed to find a way to live-stream it on the big screen at her church, St. John’s Cobble Hill, so friends and supporters could enjoy it as she joined a group of young performers in Vaughan Williams’s ‘Serenade to Music’, a Proms favourite that has been included in the concerts 26 times since 1939.

Friend Michelle Redfern posted: “Outstanding achievement! I grew up with records called A Night at the Proms. This is huge. I was crying my eyes out at how significant a moment it was, so good to share it with all those people who have loved and supported you at St. John’s,” and Pat Fiddis agreed, saying, “We are all so honoured to know her and to know how well she is doing.”

Trisha Daniell said, “What’s really amazing is that I was texting her while listening to the Proms and learning she and her colleagues were backstage in the top level celebrating. What technology we have.”
