Orchestra of Opera North's David Greed on outdoor performances

It's not every day you play classical music to a bunch of picnic-eating opera-loving guests sitting in a field… Violinist David Greed explains how it's done with Classic FM's Jamie Crick.

Performing outside has its own set of trials and tribulations: from amplification concerns to weather worries. Luckily, after a three-hour rehearsal for Leeds Opera in the Park, the sun looked set to shine and the Orchestra of Opera North could look forward to a great evening of music-making.

Speaking with Jamie Crick ahead of the performance, David gave us an insight into what it's like performing at such a large festival-style event - and why Opera North are so looking forward to playing.
