Chris Evans gets ready for Radio 2’s 2DAY
BBC Radio 2 is holding its now annual 2DAY tomorrow (Friday) and Chris Evans will be live from the Hackney Empire.
Chris and his sports reporter Vassos will be putting the focus on the brass section of the orchestra. Vassos will attempt to learn to play a trombone. In this picture they are limbering up trying out their trumpeting skills.
Chris said: “Never one to blow my own trumpet, instead – for Radio 2’s 2DAY – my sports guru Vassos will be attempting to learn the trombone. And I’m sure he’ll be top brass!”
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the world’s longest running orchestral music show ‘Friday Night is Music Night’, so this year’s 2Day celebrates the orchestra and its instruments, culminating in a Friday Night Is Music Night Gala concert at the Hackney Empire in London.
Throughout the day, Radio 2 explores the impact of orchestral instruments across a wide range of music, from pop to jazz, from folk to classical. Each show, from Chris Evans to Simon Mayo is themed around a different section of the orchestra and features special guests, orchestral moments some unlikely live music performances.
