Sean Rafferty presents a special edition of the show for International Women's Day. Composer Errollyn Wallen curates the programme, pianist Christina McMaster performs at the In Tune piano, and the Netherlands Chamber Choir sing live before heading straight to Cadogan Hall for their evening concert. Plus we have our very own world première: a collaborative piece by a dozen young female composers currently on the Proms Inspire scheme. Competition judge Hannah Kendall is joined by Rosie Tunley, one of the composers on the scheme, to talk to Sean about the new work.
