Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Classic FM listener Holly from Devon has fulfilled her dream of playing the flute with the London Symphony Orchestra, thanks to a competition made possible by Honda.
Holly has played the flute since primary school but had never played in an orchestra or given a concert. She entered our competition ‘Win your dream thanks to Honda’, and won the opportunity to have a lesson with the principal flautist of the LSO Gareth Davies, join the Orchestra for a rehearsal and then joined them for a public concert at London’s Barbican on May 28.
Holly was one of five winners in the competition last week, which also saw one Classic FM listener get help to start her own cake shop.
