Tonight, Classic FM joins Katherine Jenkins as the famed Welsh mezzo performs a Saturday night at-home concert for all those self-isolating or quarantined at home.
With concert halls closed and performances called off for the next few months, some of the world’s most prominent musicians are playing from their living rooms – and streaming it live for everyone at home to enjoy.
Tonight (Saturday 4 April), the brilliant Welsh mezzo Katherine Jenkins is joining the army of musicians to be singing and sharing their music online.
The world-famous classical crossover singer performed a beautiful concert from her living room, in partnership with Classic FM.
Jenkins said of the special performance: “In these difficult times, we have to come together but we also have to feel we are together. That we are united even if we feel alone.
“I’m delighted Classic FM will be joining me tonight for the third concert in the series. I intend to continue on for as long as people out there feel they need the support.”
