Illuminate shining light on the work of women composers and performers
The Illuminate concert series presents new works by five emerging female composers - Angela Elizabeth Slater, Gemma Mcgregor, Blair Boyd, Sarah Westwood and Carol J Jones written for performers Késia Decoté (piano), Cassie Matthews (guitar), Sabina Virtosu (violin) and composer-performer Gemma Mcgregor (flute/shakuhachi). The concert will also include a piece by Cardiff University School of Music's Reader in Composition, Arlene Sierra. These new works will be performed alongside historical works by women composers including Morfydd Owen, Lily Boulanger, and Amy Beach. We are privileged to have Dr Rhian Davies join us for this concert to give a short introduction about the welsh composer Morfydd Owen and her music.
