Over the next seven weeks, starting Monday 1 August, RNZ Concert will be bringing NZ audiences an exclusive selection of concerts from this year's BBC Proms - just weeks after they have been recorded live in London by the BBC.

The Proms have a long-standing history in London. This is the 122nd season of the BBC Proms, which is running from 15 July-10 September, with more than 90 concerts over eight weeks, including four of the famed 'Last Night of the Proms' celebrations around the UK. Watch the BBC's Proms preview:

You are able to tune into 45 of these Proms at various times on RNZ Concert.

Scroll through our broadcast list below to find out when the concerts will be on air (NZT), and if you're not near a radio, find out all of the different ways you can listen to RNZ or hit the 'Listen Live' button at the top right of your screen.
