London 2012: Music Nation weekend in Stoke-on-Trent

The first Music Nation weekend performance in the West Midlands region, as part of the Cultural Olympiad, will take place later.

The concert, called An American Adventure, will star the BBC Philharmonic at the Victoria Hall in Stoke-on-Trent.

Five other concerts will be held in the region as part of the event.

The BBC and London 2012 organising committee Locog have been involved in the initiative.

Some of the UK's leading orchestras and choirs are taking part in more than 100 performances across the UK to mark the weekend.
