Choirs across the UK are invited to adopt 40 different railway stations as part of Platform to Perform for BBC Music Day on Friday 28 September 2018.
Local choirs and singing groups are invited to celebrate stations at the heart of their local communities and perform to passengers at times throughout the day.
BBC Local Radio and TV will feature Platform to Perform highlights. There will also be moments on the BBC Music Day Live Page.
Platform to Perform is simply the power of choirs and the songs they choose to sing. Choirs will perform at grand terminus stations in cities, busy regional commuter hubs and also at smaller stations in rural communities.
We are working in partnership with railway companies, who manage stations, to identify which ones are best placed to accommodate performances on concourses and in public areas.
If you would like your choir to take part and run a choir event as part of Platform to Perform, please contact the BBC Music Day team before Friday 3rd August 2018.
Please email BBCMusicDay@bbc.co.uk with the subject Platform to Perform
Here is a list of BBC Local Radio stations across England – there will be one railway station in each area. Platform to Perform will also run in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
BBC Music Day is a UK-wide, multi-platform initiative that aims to bring generations and communities together through music. In 2017 we reached 8 million viewers on TV, 12 million on radio and we trended on Twitter throughout the day. The initiative united over 120 external partners who delivered almost a thousand live music events and over 18 hours of broadcast coverage.
