BBC Concert Orchestra in California

Last night in California is pretty much this morning over here. Last night the BBC Concert Orchestra and their American Principal Conductor Keith Lockhart gave a concert of British music at the Valley Performing Arts Center in Northridge near Los Angeles. This afternoon Katie Derham presents that concert in Afternoon on 3 - technology permitting!
After the concert, Katie rounds off her week featuring British and French music with more from the BBC Singers' recording of French Renaissance polyphony by Dominique Phinot, plus the BBC Symphony Orchestra playing Debussy's Jeux and the UK premiere of Liza Lim's Flying Banner.
