Hedd Wyn Music Project

4 December 2015

We are eager to commission a person or creative team, namely composer/s and librettist (poetry, prose, drama) to create a major work for various artists e.g. soloists, choirs, narrator and orchestra.

This new work will be the opening concert at the Anglesey National Eisteddfod in 2017, and will commemorate the centenary of the First World War, using the story of Hedd Wyn as inspiration for the creative process.

The project is a partnership between the National Eisteddfod of Wales, Snowdonia National Park Authority, Arts Council of Wales, Gwynedd County Council, Anglesey County Council and BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and will commence in January 2016.

For further information and application details please contact Mari Lloyd Pritchard at cynllunheddwyn@gmail.com or 07875 697 981. The information is also available to download as a PDF from the bottom of the page.  The English information and brief is on p3-4 of the document.

Closing date: January 4th, 2016.
