UK: This week British station Classic FM celebrated its 25th anniversary. Wednesday night the station was broadcasting from stately home Dumfries House where His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance.
Classic FM celebrated in style this week and invited His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall among others to stately home Dumfries House for its 25th anniversary. One of the highlights of the evening was the world premiere of Twilight Falls on Temple View by Welsh composer Paul Mealor – written about Dumfries House, especially for the celebration.
The evening itself began with special performances from Aled Jones, alongside his fellow Classic FM presenter, Myleene Klass. Other highlights included student musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (of which Prince Charles is Patron); folk singer Josie Duncan; and pianist Ji Liu.
