Join us for Classic FM's spectacular 25th Birthday concert - live!

Birthday concert Classic FM

We're celebrating 25 Years, live in Liverpool this September - and we want you to join us!

On 7 September 2017, Classic FM will celebrate 25 years to the day since it hit the airwaves. So we thought we'd celebrate this momentous anniversary with a huge concert of incredible music from one of the world's finest orchestras, hosted by our very own Bill Turnbull.

And the best thing about this birthday party? Everyone's invited!

If you weren't able to get tickets to Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall, you can still pop a bottle of bubbly and join us for a celebration from the comfort of your own living room. The concert will be broadcast live on Classic FM, and (in a Classic FM first), you can also catch the full concert live on Facebook. We'll bring you video from the stage live on our Facebook page, so you don't miss a note.

So, RSVP and let us know you're attending! And on the evening of the 7th, sit back and enjoy a night of stunning music from Classic FM's Orchestra in the North West, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Michael Seal.

Here's what you can expect to hear on the night:

Handel - Zadok the Priest
Rimsky-Korsakov - ‘The Young Prince and the Young Princess’ from Scheherazade
Bruch - Violin Concerto No. 1
Sibelius - Finlandia
Walton - Crown Imperial
Mozart - Ave verum corpus
Jenkins - Palladio
Beethoven - Symphony No. 6 Pastoral (first movement)
