Today we’re joining in with BBC Music Day, a day bringing the nation together to celebrate the power of music to change lives. Now in its fourth year, BBC Music Day sees a special series of programmes, performances and activities planned throughout the day across television, radio and online.


Our very own Rising Voices, Bristol’s Recovery Choir, are proud to be invited to take part in today’s activities, highlighting the different ways in which music can change lives and improve health and wellbeing.

Rising Voices will be taking part in Platform to Perform, a series of events across the UK which see’s choirs performing at railway stations at the heart of their local communities throughout the day. For Bristol, we teamed up with the University of West of England to create a bespoke experimental sound installation at Bristol Temple Meads Station.

Created by Dr Chris Nash, the live music installation titled Track by Track allows the public to interact with the choir’s recorded voices as you move around the platform. If you’re visiting Bristol Temple Meads Station between 11am and 4pm make sure you take part on platform three.

BBC Music Day provides an opportunity for everyone to get involved and be part of the music.

You can drop in any time throughout the afternoon and evening to hear a range of music. View their full line up at Colston Hall here.
