"Sarah Roper, the new president of IDRS and the Solo Oboe of the Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla, Spain, will perform Grace Mary Williams Carillons for Oboe and Orchestra. Williams is the most notable female composer from Wales, and she is the first British woman to score a feature film. This piece was commissioned by the BBC in Wales, who requested “something light-weight and entertaining.”
