Protesters with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) disrupted the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra’s (IPO) BBC Proms concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall Thursday night.Too bad the thugs don't feel the same way.
Several demonstrators in the hall shouted as Zubin Mehta stood to conduct Bruch’s violin concerto, however, the rest of the audience booed in response.
While BBC Radio 3 said it had to interrupt its live broadcast twice “as a result of sustained audience disturbance,” some concert-goers claim the performance was interrupted up to seven different times. [...]
The BBC reports that outside the concert hall, roughly 20 PSC demonstrators waved banners and sang songs in protest against the philharmonic’s appearance. They were met, however, by several pro-Israel groups who staged their own protest in response.
Addressing the disruption, the BBC Proms Team took to Twitter, stating: “We’re sorry that the concert was taken off air following hall disturbance. Glad both pieces were heard by the audience in the RAH.”
It later added: “We regret that as a result of sustained audience disturbance tonight’s concert was taken off BBC Radio 3.”
