BBC Ten Pieces

Cumbria Music Hub is a Ten Pieces Champion, and since the launch of BBC 10 Pieces in 2015 Hub Partners have been busy right across the county this year working with schools as part of the nationwide BBC Ten Pieces project. Highlights include:


  • Whitehaven had a special visit from the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, bringing live orchestral music to 1200 primary children.
  • Ghyllside school in Kendal was one of just 10 schools to have a Take-over day with musicians from the BBC Philharmonic.
  • Celebration Concerts around the county have brought children from different primary schools together to showcase their work.


Thank you for organising a fabulous concert. We all had a ball and it was great to take part and to see all the other representations of the 10 pieces.
