Tŷ Cerdd’s mission is to promote the music of Wales in all its variety to every community. Their funding aims to help communities use music to enhance their
society activities and to promote musical activity in all parts of Wales.

We are encouraging communities to invest in, and enjoy the excitement of, new music. We have created a fund to enable composers to work with organisations in their communities to create new work. We see composers in communities as an incredibly exciting opportunity. We aim to make new music by supporting our performing groups throughout Wales.

We are offering up to five residencies for organisations, ensembles and societies to work in partnership with a Welsh composer (or a composer living and working in Wales). The project must be completed within 12 month period and must achieve a performance of a new work.

Successful organisations will work closely with their composer in workshops, rehearsals and performances to produce new music over this period.
