Julia Plaut 1965
Mae Julia Plaut yn cyfansoddi’n bennaf ar gyfer llais, corau ac offerynnau chwyth. Mae ei gweithiau corawl wedi’u perfformio yng Nghanolfan y Mileniwm Caerdydd ac yn Eglwys Gadeiriol Llandaf yn ogystal â chân gelf yng Ngŵyl Leeds Lieder 2019. Mae premières ei cherddoriaeth offerynnol wedi cael eu cynnal yng Ngholeg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru lle mae Julia ar hyn o bryd yn astudio ar gyfer gradd Meistr mewn Cyfansoddi. Mae Julia yn cyfuno cyfansoddi â gwaith ar ei liwt ei hun fel chwaraewr basŵn ac arweinydd côr.
