Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Bob Jones' pioneering podcast series dedicates time to the artists and organisations that make the classical world turn - this week he talks to Opera North.
Opera North stages its popular version of Pinochio this evening at the start of an exciting new season for the company. Apart from a new image, and expanding presence across the North, It's Orchestra has just become Classic FM's Orchestra in Yorkshire. Orchestra and Chorus Director Dougie Scarfe explains what that means to his talented band of musicians.
