Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins is hoping to introduce classical music to a new audience after signing up to host her own radio show.
The mezzo-soprano will present a 12-week series called The Katherine Jenkins Collection on U.K. network Classic Fm, beginning in June (13).
Jenkins has handpicked her favourite compositions as well as pieces essential to the genre's newcomers.
She says, "I've listened to Classic Fm for years, and the station has been a great friend to me throughout my career - so I'm delighted to now be joining the team as a presenter. This new series will hopefully do what Classic Fm does best: introduce many people to classical music for the very first time, whilst also offering something special for those who are already familiar with this wonderful music. I can't wait to get started!"
