BBC NOW performs new Welsh music at VoG Festival

2.00pm, BBC Hoddinott Hall, Wales Millennium Centre Conductor: Jac van Steen Piano: Clare Hammond What better way to kick off our 2022 Festival than with Wales’ foremost symphony orchestra perform a programme of entirely Welsh works including three world premieres? Grace Williams blazed a trail which later generations of Welsh composers have followed. We’re immensely proud to present a concert of works by Welsh Composers, spanning the decades and bringing us right up to date with world premieres from Sarah Lianne Lewis, David John Roche and Festival Director John Metcalf.
