'Symphony for Me'. You might have a favourite piece of classical music, even if you don’t think of yourself as a classical music fan. Maybe you only know one piece – something you heard as a kid, something you know from a film, something linked with a big life event – but it’s music that occupies a special place in your heart. You might know lots of classical music, but still have a favourite for these same reasons. We want you to share with us what that music is, and why it means so much to you.
