Ruby Hughes, Owain Park, Clare Hammond, Nathaniel Hackmann

Katie Derham's guests include soprano Ruby Hughes, composer Owain Park, pianist Clare Hammond, and Broadway singer Nathaniel Hackmann.

Katie Derham's guests include soprano and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ruby Hughes, who sings live for us before performing at the Presteigne Festival in her native country, Wales. Composer Owain Park joins Katie to discuss his debut album of choral works, recorded by The Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, directed by Stephen Layton. Former recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artist Award, pianist Clare Hammond, performs live in the studio ahead of her recital at Southwell Music Festival. And as part of our Bernstein 100 celebrations, Broadway singer Nathaniel Hackmann brings some 'On the Town' flair - he's playing Gabey in the BBC Proms performance of Bernstein's musical.
