2DAY 2013: Orchestrating Radio 2
2013 marks the 60th anniversary of the world's longest
running orchestral music show Friday Night is Music Night, and this year's
2Day celebrates the orchestra and its instruments, culminating in a Friday
Night Is Music Night Gala concert at the Hackney Empire in London.
Featuring the BBC Concert Orchestra, the evening will bring together a host of Radio 2 presenters and special guest performers including Gary Barlow, Elaine Paige, Mick Hucknall, Jamie Cullum and Clare Teal - plus Tony Blackburn as you've never seen him before and a grand finale from the Radio 2 all star presenters choir.
You'll be able to watch the concert live via the Red Button and right here at bbc.co.uk/radio2.
Throughout the day, in the lead up to Friday Night is Music
Night, Radio 2 explores the impact of orchestral instruments across a wide
range of music...from pop to jazz...from folk to classical.
