BBC Music Day
Petroc Trelawny presents a special programme live from Birdoswald Roman Fort on Hadrian's Wall. He is joined by the BBC Singers for the inaugural BBC Music Day.
Petroc Trelawny presents a special edition of the Breakfast programme from Birdoswald Roman Fort on Hadrian's Wall. He's joined live by the BBC Singers as Radio 3 joins "Hadrian's Wall of Sound" - a live musical event taking place along the Wall from Bowness-on-Solway to Wallsend.
BBC Music Day will connect communities and generations with an inspirational celebration of music across the UK. Radio 3 Breakfast is the start of a day of live music-making on Radio 3 involving all of the BBC's performing groups. The day ends with a live gala concert with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at City Halls in Glasgow in a simulcast on Radio 3, 2, Radio Scotland, Asian Network and on red button.
BBC Music Day kicks off with 'Hadrian's Wall of Sound' - a unique, visually spectacular musical relay from Bowness on Solway to Wallsend. Hundreds of musicians from diverse communities along the wall will journey by bicycle, horse, open top vintage bus, motorbike and unicycle, passing a baton from performer to performer. The music will start at daybreak in West Cumbria and finish in North Tyneside - 73 miles and 14 hours later. This ambitious feat will be reflected live on BBC Radio 3 - led by the BBC Singers - and on BBC local radio, BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Look North (North East and Cumbria).
