Congratulations to Xander Dunbar and Caleb Evans. Out of the seventy-two composers who put forward compositions for the Young Composer of Dyfed competition, they were two of only eighteen to make it to the final. Xander and Caleb each wrote a piece for Red Priest, a professional ensemble of musicians specialising in Baroque music. Both had their piece performed in Rhosygilwen as part of the finalist’s concert and received a professional recording of their music on CD – first steps in the world of classical composition. The competition process will start again in September, see Mr Davies for more information and become a professional composer yourself.
