PhD Student Cameron Biles-Liddell to compose for the Royal Scottish National Orchestra

This follows on Cameron’s recent success emerging from his piece for the BBC National Orchestra of Wales earlier this year, which was premiered and broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Cameron Biles-LiddellOver the course of the next year, Cameron Biles-Liddell, a Music PhD student at the University of Manchester, will collaborate with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra to produce two new orchestral works. His first piece for the RSNO is for chamber orchestra and it will be for January 2022 and the second, for full orchestra, in the summer of 2022.

These pieces will be recorded and developed in close contact with the orchestra, where composer and mentor Stuart MacRae will also assist in the development of the compositions. This is a great opportunity for Cameron, and we wish him every success.

Cameron says:

‘I am absolutely thrilled and humbled to be one of the five selected composers for this highly competitive composition opportunity. I owe a lot to Camden Reeves for his teaching and support over the years, he’s given me the courage to pursue what interests me as a composer and always given me valuable advice...I am excited to get started!'

Cameron is currently in his second year of a PhD in Musical Composition, under the supervision of Professor Camden Reeves.
