Jessica Curry said: “I’m delighted to be presenting Classic FM’s brand new series on video game music, High Score. I’m a passionate advocate of both classical and game music and there’s so much exciting crossover between these two worlds. There are now orchestral concerts of game music touring the finest concert halls across the globe and it’s wonderful that Classic FM is recognising the diversity and richness in the field with a dedicated show. There is so much fantastic music to share and discover and I’m really proud to join the Classic FM team.”
