Here at Children's Classic Concerts, we're thrilled to be a champion of the BBC's Ten Pieces initiative - a wonderful adventure dedicated to bringing some epic classical* music into the classroom and a whole load of fun too!It's all around us, but the Ten Pieces film, recorded with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, digs a little deeper into this genre of music and explores the sights conjured up, as well as the sounds by each composer - imagination is key! The film is perfect for primary age children and schools can request a free DVD copy whilst stocks last. There are lots of fantastic resources that follow on from the film to help your child/school get hands-on and creative with music, so please visit the BBC Ten Pieces website
Dust off your dancing shoes, prepare to come dressed in your freaky finest and grab your tickets* now! Check out the What's On page for booking info. Hope to see you there!*Please note that our concerts are recommended for children of primary school age, although we welcome everyone. Babes in arms up to the age of 12 months go free, tickets required for children aged 1+
