Radio 3 does Justin Bieber for Comic Relief

Red Nose Day on BBC Radio 3 will include a chance to hear a new version of Justin Bieber’s Beauty and a Beat.

It has been arranged for countertenor, chamber choir and baroque orchestra and will be heard during Dance Baroque for Comic Relief, a concert from Lyons Concert Hall at the University of York.

The new arrangement, by Steve Pycroft, will be performed by countertenor Robin Blaze and the University of York Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, conducted by Peter Seymour. The concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 at 1pm.

The audience at Dance Baroque for Comic Relief will join a host of broadcasting personalities including ex-footballer & 5Live pundit Pat Nevin, former Emmerdale heartthrob Kurtis Stacey, Dinnerladies star Sue Devaney and Radio 4 newsreader Zeb Soanes to learn the steps to music by 17th century composer Henry Purcell.

The concert is part of BBC Radio 3’s Baroque Spring – a month-long season of music, drama and comedy dedicated to shedding new light on the Baroque era.
