PhD student wins prestigious award


Second Year PhD Student, Cameron Biles-Liddell, has been awarded the 2022 Paul Mealor Bursary for Student Composers by the Welsh Music Guild. This prize is the opportunity to compose a work for the baritone, Jeremy Huw Williams, and piano which will be premiered in autumn 2022. This follows on from the recent premier of Cameron’s piece, Frozen Plains, as performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales as part of the BBC Composition Wales:2021 Scheme.

Cameron says:

‘I’m thrilled to be awarded this bursary by the Welsh Music Guild. As a composer based in Wales it is wonderful for my work to be recognised and supported by the Welsh Music Guild and receive the opportunity to compose a new work. Thanks goes to the music department and Camden Reeves for his support, advice and guidance that has prepared me to make the most out of these opportunities, I am looking forward to what comes next!’
