BBC 10 Pieces ER Music Hub

Peter Walker, along with colleagues including Ruth Cunningham from the East Riding Music Service, today performed with a full orchestra live to our Year 7 students as part of BBC Ten Pieces. BBC Ten Pieces opens up the world of classical music to 7-14 year-olds, introducing them to inspiring music and empowering them to make their own creative responses. Peter said ''Our aim with BBC Ten Pieces is to inspire students with a live full orchestra performance, leading to greater interest in classical music. By the end of the week we will have visited and performed to eight local schools and tomorrow concludes with a live stream on our Facebook page.'' Ruth added ''It will be the first time that many of these students will have heard what is a powerful sound and the response from the students has been very positive.'' Thank you to everyone involved for providing our students with such an uplifting experience.
