Pop-Up Orchestra Concert At St Pancras Station Today

Travellers passing through St Pancras at lunchtime today are going to run into a special treat (or disruption, depending on your view). The BBC Symphony Orchestra, accompanied by a massed choir, will perform the famous finale of Beethoven's Choral Symphony at 1pm on the lower concourse.

The pop-up concert is being used to promote the Beeb's new series (on Radio 3 and BBC 4, starting tomorrow night) about the history of the symphony. The show's presenter, Actor Simon Russell Beale, will be directing proceedings at St Pancras.

Images to follow later.
