Cameron Biles-Liddell’s piece Caer Drewyn (The Hill Fort) takes inspiration from an iron age hill fort based in Corwen, North Wales. The piece will be premiered on 7 March 2023 at Hoddinott Hall, Millennium Centre, Cardiff, and will be available to livestream. 

Biles-Liddell is spending the run-up to the concert rehearsing with BBC NOW and principal conductor Ryan Bancroft, while also being mentored by composers Gavin Higgins and Sarah Lianne-Lewis to bring the piece to life.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to have the chance to explore my orchestral music with BBC NOW,” he said. “This piece is quite personal to me as it explores my Welsh heritage, being brought up in North Wales. Really can’t wait for this fab orchestra to bring it to life.”

You can register for the free livestream online.
