From time to time the orchestra commissions new works, sometimes with established composers and sometimes with young musicians at music college.
Recent works have included:
- Raymond Warren – Gwent Carnival Overture
- Iestyn Harding – Pieces for children
- Benjamin Frank Vaughan – Akiko
We are also excited to announce a collaboration with Iestyn Harding under the Tŷ Cerdd Codi Buddies scheme. The aim is to help composers forge relationships with community music-makers, and to produce a lasting legacy of partnerships and high quality new work. Over the summer of 2019 we’ll be working with Iestyn to develop some new music for the coming year.
