CAM returns with an exciting project celebrating the composers and performers from both South Wales in the United Kingdom and New South Wales in Australia…
CAM Director Wendy Hiscocks collaborates with the Welsh baritone Jeremy Huw Williams (both pictured above) on 16 beautiful and diverse settings of original Welsh folksongs sung in the original language.
Jeremy has been a strong advocate of Welsh song for many years and has been active in commissioning settings from many composers. Here he tells us about this project.
For the forthcoming recital Jeremy has selected two songs by four South Wales composers that include the young dynamic composer Nathan James Dearden as well as Grace Williams, Alun Hoddinott and William Mathias.
Four New South Wales composers, Alex Palmer, Andrew Schultz, John Martin and Wendy Hiscocks have accepted CAM’s invitation to contribute eight songs in today’s programme; each of these composers have filmed their own introduction before the world premiere of their songs which we shall feature in forthcoming news items.
The South Wales meets New South Wales virtual will take place later this year. We shall be announcing the dates and times soon.
You will be invited to attend this virtual event free of charge. To help ensure CAM’s work continues, please consider giving a donation by clicking on the link that appears after the concert. A donation, no matter how small, will be an invaluable resource for CAM.
“This concert is lovingly dedicated to the South Coast teacher Wendy Blunt who was an inspiration to her students and one of the kindest and most generous people to have graced the earth.”Says Wendy
We would also like to thank Wirripang for their support of the CAM initiative.
