Hi there! Glad you made it! This page is for students, staff, audiences and anyone else interested in talking about the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama so take a seat and join the conversation.
The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, the National Conservatoire of Wales, and part of the University of South Wales Group, competes alongside an international peer group of conservatoires and specialist arts colleges for the best students globally, enabling students to enter and influence the world of music, theatre and related professions. Artistic Voice - The College educates some of the most talented students from around the world, aiming to give them not just the technical and craft skills they’ll need to succeed at the top levels of the profession, but also to help them to develop their individual artistic ‘voice.’ Creative Diversity - The College’s events calendar encompasses over 300 public performances every year including orchestral concerts, recitals, drama, opera and musical theatre. The creative diversity of the college ensures a stimulating environment and broad experience for students of all disciplines. Pushing Boundaries - Our dedicated teachers have a wealth of professional and industry experience and the college collaborates with a number of high-profile arts organisations, including Welsh National Opera, BBC NOW, visiting artists and directors, to ensure that the unique vocational nature of our training programmes reflect the current practices and conditions of the professional world. The College is constantly pushing boundaries with innovative and exciting programmes of study tailored to the demands of contemporary arts and creative industries. In 2009, its 60th anniversary year, the College became the UK’s first All-Steinway Conservatoire. The focus is always on the future and we take immense pride in the world-class talent of our students.

Hi!I'm a theatre studies tutor at Edinburgh University. I'm thinking of bringing a group of my students to see En Folkefiende as part of a Festival Summer School. Your adaptation of Enemy of the People looks really interesting. Can I access a script - or even script extracts - to use for class preparation? Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks, Liz Hare

How to Play Indian Sitar Raags on a Piano http://www.lulu.com/shop/john-pitts/how-to-play-indian-sitar-raags-on-a-piano/paperback/product-22961686.html FOR ADVENTUROUS PIANISTS Hallo, I'd be grateful if you could share this with your students if appropriate - it is my brand new 258-page book of 24 Indian Sitar Raags completely reinvented for piano, plus a whole load of instruction and musical examples. Here's some blurb: It is designed to be enjoyed by good amateur pianists through to virtuosic professionals. It is suitable for any pianist who enjoys discovering new music, or who has an interest in music from other cultures, or who knows the pleasure of jazz noodling and wants to explore a rewarding and fresh (but centuries-old) form of improvisation. Indian raags have an extraordinary musical heritage dating back several centuries (from the area that is now India, Pakistan and Bangladesh) - a truly unique musical genre of fascinating melodic beauty and rhythmic intricacy – freely combining elaborate composed melodies with carefully rehearsed improvisation. But now the amazing world of Indian raags has been opened up in this sympathetic but thorough reinvention for piano solo (or duet or two pianos). www.johnpitts.co.uk
Merry Christmas everyone! 🎄✨
The Box Office will close at 2pm today and reopen on Tuesday 3 January at 10am. Tickets can be purchased online - not too late for a last minute Christmas present!
