SARC PhD Graduate and Visiting Scholar Una Lee receives Oram Award 2020

Congratulations to Una Lee, SARC PhD Graduate and Visiting Scholar who was named as one of this year's winners of The Oram Awards.

PRS Foundation, the UK’s leading funder of new music and talent development, together with The New BBC Radiophonic Workshop created The Oram Awards celebrating innovation in music, sound and related technologies by the next generation of forward thinking women and gender minority artists. Named after Daphne Oram, one of the founding members of the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop, the awards hope to build on her legacy. 

Whilst there are many women and gender minority artists innovating in music and sound, their work and their voices often struggle to be heard and we're missing the opportunity to celebrate role models for the next generation. 

Following an outstanding uptake in applications in 2020, The Orams are pleased to announce the names of this year’s six winners: Loula Yorke, NikNak, Poulomi Desai, Una Lee, Vicky Clarke and Yifeat Ziv. The winners will be profiled on BBC Radio 3 in the upcoming weeks and receive mentoring from the members of The New BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 2021.
