The BBC's Proms season is nearing its end, and to celebrate this great British event, Breakfast has had a week of special programmes.
Yo Yo Ma joins Alistair live for the Proms in the Park
For our final trip to the Proms, Alistair Appleton had a star-studded cast.
Bryn Terfel, Yo Yo Ma and Leonard Slatkin joined us live in Hyde Park, where preparations are well under way for Saturday's Proms in the Park. You can watch their interviews by clicking on the right hand side of this story
We have had several enquiries about the piece of music Yo Yo Ma played to end the programme. He introduced it as the prelude from Bach's first suite.
The winner of Leonard Slatkin's baton and score for the last night of the Proms was Alison O'Donnell from Lincoln.
Thursday at the Proms
Today we talked live to the soprano Angela Gheorghiu.
Angela's voice has been described as "spun gold"
We also found out how the former Hear'Say star Myleene Klass is returning to her roots with a new classical chill-out album. It's called Moving On - and it's released on October 20.
The winner of Thursday's competition is Roger Hancock of Boston, Lincolnshire.
Wednesday at the Proms
Today - we brought good news for anyone who loves the last night of the proms.
You may remember that on Monday morning's programme, we told you how the principal flautist Michael Cox had been distraught to discover his flute had been lost on the top deck of a London bus.
The instrument was made in the early nineteenth century - and is the equivalent of a Stradivarius for a violinist. Cox was due to use it for two solos in Saturday's concert.
We broadcast an appeal for the flute's return - and someone at the bus garage realised they'd seen it in their lost property safe.
So, this morning, we reunited Michael Cox with his flute. And we heard the full story of what had happened from the restorer who lost the instrument and the bus driver who found it.
Alistair talked to the veteran American actress Bea Arthur, who starred in The Golden Girls.
We also heard from Pam St Clement - Pat from Eastenders - about her love of Bach's choral music
The winner of today's competition is Stuart Chillingworth of Woodford Green, Essex. He gets a bag of goodies relating to the CBBC proms in the park.
