We are a Champion of an amazing new initiative from the BBC, Ten Pieces! The aim is to inspire primary school children in year 6 to develop their own creative responses to ten very different pieces ranging from Handel to John Adams. The year-long project ends with a celebratory finale in Summer 2015.
