Building on the success of Ten Pieces which has already engaged nearly half of UK primary schools, the BBC is extending the ground-breaking initiative to secondary schools. The aim is to open the world of classical music to children aged 11 and above and to inspire them to respond creatively to the repertoire.
An inspirational new cinematic film will feature stunning footage of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra performing a new selection of orchestral music, representing a wide range of styles and eras relevant to the music curriculum. Each piece will be introduced by celebrity presenters known to the age group, using an engaging mix of live action and animation.
The film will be shown at Forest Arts Centre on Friday 9 October at 10am and 1pm. The Ten Pieces primary film will also be shown again as part of this Ten Pieces cinema showing.
Places must be booked in advance and can be done so by calling Forest Arts Centre on 01922 654555.
