Young musicians from Stopsley Primary School have been chosen by the BBC to promote a national music project at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Stopsley pupils were spotted by the BBC after the Luton Music Service showed the production team a video of them performing a whole class-concert for parents.

The BBC team invited four members of the class to the Royal Albert Hall to have their photos taken with percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, soprano Danielle De Niese, BBC presenter Katie Derham and conductor Nicholas Collon for the proms’ main promotional image.

Headteacher Jackie Chidwick said: ‘We were thrilled that the children were asked to go to the Royal Albert Hall. Having their photograph taken with such an illustrious team was a wonderful opportunity for them too. The ten piece children’s proms will take place in July and we are hoping that a number of our children will be taking part but this is yet to be confirmed.’

There will be two Ten Pieces Proms at the Royal Albert Hall on July 18 and 19.
