BBC NOW 2011 Welsh Composers Showcase
PhD Composer Steven Berryman was among six composers chosen to participate in the highly competitive BBC National Orchestra of Wales Welsh Composers Showcase. The competition is for composers born in Wales or currently studying in Wales, and will see the selected scores featured in a two day Showcase at BBC Hoddinott Hall at Wales Millennium Centre.
Composers will have their pieces performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales during a workshop session, and selected highlights of the two days will be performed in concert on Friday 18 February, 7pm.
Steven Berryman is from Mansfield and studied at Cardiff University and Royal Holloway before returning to Cardiff for the PhD in Composition where he studies with Dr Arlene Sierra. He is Assistant Director of Music at North London Collegiate School and also teaches in the Junior Department of the Royal Academy of Music.
Cardiff University Composers have done extremely well in the BBC NOW Welsh Composers Showcase. Earlier participants include PhD students Max Charles Davies, Christian Morris and Jack White.
