“I found out in November I’d been nominated,” she said. “I was thrilled to bits I couldn’t believe it. I still can’t believe it. I have no idea who nominated me; it’s been very cloak and dagger.”
Mrs Williams is well-known as the co-founder and musical director of the Landsker Singers, which now consists of two mixed junior choirs and a four part adult choir.
Born in Pembrokeshire Mrs Williams trained at Cardiff, now the Royal College of Music and Drama, and as a chorister, both with the Cardiff Polyphonic and the BBC Welsh Chorus, before returning to her home county.
She has performed as a soloist with many local and national choirs and has dedicated her time and energy to nurturing a love of music in both adults and young people in Pembrokeshire.
