• BBC Ten Pieces Tour

BBC Ten Pieces Tour

Throughout 2015 we toured schools performing the BBC Ten Pieces.

We kicked off our tour in the fabulous Bath Abbey with hundreds of local school children experiencing live classical music and then we came over to Kent. Working with Soundhub (Kent’s music hub) we identified 9 secondary schools who hosted our orchestra for local primaries.

In total over 10,000 children and staff attended from over 85 schools and in an independent survey 97% said they would come to another of our concerts.

Over 60% of children expressed an interest in learning a musical instrument after the concert and teachers felt we had dispelled the misconceptions of classical music being stuffy.
