It has just been announced that Alpesh will make his BBC Proms debut this year with the BBC Philharmonic, performing Ten Pieces II on Saturday 23 July and Sunday 24 July at the Royal Albert Hall. This follows on from the first year of the hugely successful Ten Pieces project, which has so far seen more than half of the UK’s primary schools engaging in the scheme. Find out more about the project here.
