It's not every day you'll catch Jamie Crick and Lesley Garrett in a hairdressing salon together, but today they're celebrating the launch of a brand new charity calendar.

What do opera singers get up to when they're not performing? The Musicians Benevolent Fund is launching a special calendar today in an attempt to answer this question, featuring singers enjoying their precious time off.

The calendar, titled Opera Off-Stage, boasts Lesley Garrett, Renée Fleming, Dame Felicity Lott, Gerald Finley, and Sir John Tomlinson among its star-studded musical models. Jamie Crick caught up with Lesley in the Trevor Sorbie hairdressers in Hampstead, where she revealed more details about the calendar, and shared her thoughts on classical music.
