Classic FM strikes Philharmonic deal

By
Classic FM has signed a 25 concert deal with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Katie Derham will present the concerts in a series of programmes for Sunday nights from the beginning of January.

The five-year partnership is Classic FM's biggest investment in live orchestral music. It also sees the station bring the Liverpool orchestra to London's Royal Albert Hall for two special concerts next year.

Other new programming for the GCap Media-owned station includes a six-part history of the orchestra and weekly reports on the city's cultural life. The station will also originate its broadcasts from Liverpool in January on a special day of programmes.
