SAVE THE DATE… Tuesday 18th June 2019 – Please share to Somerset Schools.

BBC Concert Orchestra – Ten Pieces comes to Somerset! 

Free concert for Somerset schools on Tuesday 18th June 2019

We are excited to announce that the BBC Concert Orchestra will be delivering two FREE concerts hosted at The Octagon in Yeovil.
The concerts are open and free to KS2 students in Somerset schools.
With the aim of inspiring a generation of children to get creative with classical music, the ten pieces programme invites children
aged 7-14 to develop their own creative responses to ten pieces of music.
These school-friendly concerts headed by a world class conductor and exciting presenter will open up the world of classical music to young people.

All students attending the concerts will be able to participate through a performance of Anna Meredith’s Connect it that can be learned in advance if you wish.
