Your Earth Mission, should you choose to accept it…

With the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Holst’s The Planets and Earth Day approaching – 2018/2019 is a great school year to explore the topic of space.

Holst didn’t write a movement for Earth and so our Earth Mission asks all budding Ten Pieces astronauts (your class) to create their own piece of music about the Earth as though they are looking down on it from space!

Send us a video of your Earth Mission performance by Friday 5 April for a chance to have your composition played on BBC Radio 3 on Earth Day (Monday 22 April) and feature on the BBC Ten Pieces website! See below for full information.

Show us what your Ten Pieces astronauts have created!

Send us a recording of your completed Earth Mission for a chance to be featured on the BBC Ten Pieces website and broadcast on BBC Radio 3!
