Monday - Petroc Trelawny

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show, featuring festive music and surprise features.

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show. As December progresses, plenty of festival music and surprises.

From 15th December, the BBC Singers will be specially recording carols - some of them requested by our listeners.

There's the Breakfast Advent Calendar - opening a door every day to reveal winter music and readings chosen by listeners and presenters.

Closer to Christmas, listeners will have the chance to send a Breakfast Christmas Card by requesting a piece of music and dedicating it to a friend.

And in Your Call where we hear from our audience about their favourite pieces of music, there's the chance to introduce a favourite piece of music to the rest of the UK. In the run up to Christmas we'll be hearing about music that reminds listeners of the festive season.
