Tom Redmond, Presenter

Films, TV, radio, adverts, even video games – classical music is so often the soundtrack to our lives but there’s no better way to experience its awesome power than a live concert with an 80-piece orchestra – and the Drivetime Concert is the perfect place to start. It’s an informal hour of fantastic music, with well-known pieces from some of the world’s best composers alongside epic film scores. There’s a friendly, fun atmosphere and the pieces are introduced from the stage by presenter Tom Redmond, so it’s ideal for families too. The concert starts at 6pm so you’ll miss the rush hour traffic and there’s plenty of time afterwards to grab a meal in town or get the kids to bed. This year’s concert is all about America – its wide open spaces and cities that never sleep. And there’s the unique opportunity to perform with the Hallé in the massive Drivetime Choir, performing two choral classics.
