Bethan Morgan-Williams 1992
Bethan Morgan-Williams is a Welsh composer based in Montgomeryshire. She writes instrumental, vocal and electronic music for people of all ages and abilities, finding motivation through the simple urge to provide performers with new and exciting music. Described as “marvellously oblique and obscure” [5against4] while being “rooted in something ancient and folky” [The Telegraph], Bethan’s music is fluid and expressive.
In her short composing career, Bethan has already accrued a significant number of prestigious awards, including a Leverhulme Scholarship (2018-9); the Susan Bradshaw Composer Prize (RPS – 2017-8); the Christopher Brooks Composition Prize (Young Composer in Residence with the RLPO) (2015-7); and the LSO Panufnik Scheme (2015-6). She was shortlisted for Manchester Jazz Festival’s Irwin Mitchell Prize (2014); a Paul Hamlyn Award (2017); and ISCM World Music Days (2019 & 2020).
Bethan is currently Tutor of AGM Composition at Yorkshire Young Musicians (Leeds).
