At lunchtime, guitarist Morgan Szymanski runs a guitar jam for amateur players at Hay Festival. At 4.30, In Tune presented by Sean Rafferty features disabled musicians and choirs at Colston Hall in Bristol, and Petroc Trelawny returns at 7.30 to present In Concert, live from Hall for Cornwall in Truro, with the BBCCO and the Cornwall Family Orchestra, including the premiere of a new work for BBC Music Day - "A Cornish Solstice".
