Welsh Composers' Showcase
20 December 2011
Congratulations to current PhD composer Gareth Hughes and MMus composer alumna Sarah Lewis – both have had scores chosen to feature in an upcoming Welsh Composers’ Showcase with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
Six scores in total have been chosen for the two day event taking place at BBC Hoddinott Hall in February 2012. Part of BBCNOW’s Education and Community Outreach activity, this project aims to showcase works by living composers worthy of wider exposure. It is organised in collaboration with Composers of Wales, Ty Cerdd and the Welsh Music Guild.
The project is led by BBC NOW’s Principal Guest Conductor Jac van Steen and Composer in Association Simon Holt. Resident Composer Mark Bowden will also be attending the two day event to offer support and advice to the composers involved.
Free workshops will be held at Hoddinott Hall on Wednesday 1 February. A selection of the scores will then be chosen for an afternoon rehearsal and evening concert on Thursday 2 February. All sessions are free and open to the public. Tickets are available from the Audience Line on 0800 052 1812.
