Further festivities in the field

Clayesmore’s participation in the BBC Ten Pieces initiative was recognised on Saturday when the story of the project was broadcast as part of the BBC Proms.

Our piano teacher extraordinaire, Sian Highnam, who organised our part in the proceedings, the magical “Festival in the Field” in the summer term, featured in the slot, along with shots of our pupils (and the many visitors we had on the day) taking part.

We were honoured to host the event and see our children, and those of local schools, playing together, interpreting the music and, along with members of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, performing some fabulous classical pieces.
