Sean Rafferty presents, with live music and guests and the latest arts news

Trumpeter Matthew Halsall, one of the UK jazz scene's rising stars, is in the studio to play live ahead of several festival performances this summer.

We go live to Glyndebourne to talk to mezzo Sarah Connolly and conductor William Christie as they prepare for the opening night of Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie.

There's live opera performance in the studio as baritone Hakan Vramsmo brings the Toreador Song from Bizet's Carmen to life for us, as he will in Focus Opera's performances at Chiswick House.

Plus we hear from the National Portrait Gallery as they announce the first Choir in Residence at any gallery in Britain, and film critic Mark Kermode tells us about his series of 50th birthday concerts as he joins forces with the CBSO to bring his favourite film scores to life on stage.
