Classic FM encourages listening

Classic FM is hosting its first National Listening Day as part of the first classical music project, on Tuesday 17th November.

The Global Radio station created the day to encourage its audience to take a more active listen to the music played on the station.

Classic FM presenters will tell the stories behind the music, suggest what to listen out for and encourage people to engage with a wide range of music from the last 500 years. A competition will run on-air throughout National Listening Day, giving listeners the opportunity to win CDs.

It's all part of Hear Here! – the first ever classical music project about listening. Features will also be active online throughout the day.

In addition, across the week on The Full Works Concert, broadcast Monday to Friday from 9pm, John Brunning will play the complete Top 20 pieces in the Classic FM Hall of Fame, where every work will be played in its entirety.

Classic FM’s Managing Director Darren Henley said: “More people in the UK listen to classical music through Classic FM than any other medium – and we believe it's part of our job to help people get as much as they possibly can out of their listening experience.”
