The BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition is now well under way, with two recitals taking place yesterday. The third recital is this afternoon and the first concert is at St David's Hall tonight.

Programme notes for all the recitals and concerts will appear on the site shortly before the events take place. You can find links to each recital and concert from the concerts schedule page.

We were all very sorry that Marcela González from Chile had to withdraw from the Song Prize, where she was due to sing in recital two last night. Marcela was unwell, but hopes that she will have recovered in time to take part in tomorrow's concert at St David's Hall.

The very popular Frockwatch returns! We will shortly have pictures from the first two recitals, plus comment from the inimitable Maggi Willis, Madame Frockwatch herself.

Broadcasts get under way tonight with highlights of concert one from St David's Hall, live at 10pm tonight. Full coverage of concert one will be on BBC Four tomorrow night, and BBC Radio 3's coverage of the Song Prize also begins tomorrow lunchtime. See full broadcast details.
