Music Makers of Dyfed

Young Music Makers of Dyfed aims to encourage young people to compose, and in doing so elevate their horizons as to the standards of this artistic discipline.  The Young Composer scheme is unique.

The Radcliffe Trust has been delighted to support this Young Music Makers of Dyfed initiative with two grants.  Last year they employed Lynne Plowman as the Resident Composer and a professional Ensemble was provided by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, as part of the BBC NOW education outreach programme so the ensemble fees and costs were covered by the BBC this significantly reduced the overall expenditure.

The musicians develop year on year and gain experience not found in the school classroom.  Some move on to study composition at university with one former student taking a place at The Purcell School this year, a wonderful accolade.  The six students in the photograph below were selected to take part in the concert for Young Musician.
