Conductor offers to cover orch’s fees for Welsh Proms appearance

The conductor Owain Arwel Hughes is having to offer a personal guarantee to pay musicians’ fees at this year’s Welsh Proms if ticket sales fail to meet expectations.

The Welsh Proms, which Hughes founded in 1986, lost their funding from Cardiff Council this year in a wave of local authority cuts.

The concerts are not connected to the BBC Proms.
