Classic FM is to broadcast live from Scotland next week to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its partnership with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
It will be the first time that Classic FM has broadcast a week of live programmes from Scotland, as each day the station brings a different show from a different city.
The live broadcasts commence at 6am on Sunday 13 October when Anne Marie-Minhall will present Classic FM’s More Music Breakfast from Inverness. The following day, Tim Lihoreau will host his More Music Breakfast from Aberdeen, followed next Tuesday by Jamie Crick who’ll present his afternoon show from Perth. John Suchet will host the station’s flagship morning programme from Dundee on Wednesday 16 October while Classic FM Drive, hosted by John Brunning, will come live from Edinburgh on Thursday.
In addition, on Friday 18 October in the Full Works Concert with Jane Jones, Classic FM will broadcast an exclusive concert performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra which will be recorded at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall on Saturday 12 October.
The RSNO - Classic FM’s Orchestra in Scotland - has worked with the station for the past decade, in a partnership that has encompassed concert broadcasts and education work.
The orchestra's Chief Executive Michael Elliott said, "The RSNO is proud of its continuing partnership with Classic FM to grow audiences for classical music and we are excited by the radio station’s decision to showcase the musical talent and culture of Scotland in this week of broadcasts from across the country to millions of UK listeners."
