Cambridge Music alumna Kate Whitley has been commissioned by BBC Radio 3 to set to music the text of a speech given by Malala Yousafzai, the schoolgirl who survived a murder attempt by the Taliban, as part of programming for International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March.

The piece, called Speak Out, will be performed for the first time at the BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff by the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales and broadcast on Radio 3.
