Kylie, Gareth Malone, Gabrielle, YolanDa Brown and Blossoms are the BBC Music Day Ambassadors who will be taking part in events and broadcasts in celebration of the day.

Now in its fourth year, BBC Music Day is an annual celebration of the power of music to change lives.

As a special surprise for commuters, Kylie has recorded some music-related messages which will be played at major rail stations on 28 September.

New BBC music legacy heads to East London

The new studios, part of the Stratford Waterfront development by the London Legacy Development Corporation, will be a base for the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the BBC Singers and will regularly be used by the BBC Concert Orchestra.

The site will allow the BBC to record and broadcast more live music with the new music recording equipment and rehearsal space. BBC’s radio stations BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Asian Network, Radio 2, Radio 3 and 6 Music, plus BBC Introducing, will all curate and broadcast performances regularly from the site.
