This event is part of the Stratford on Avon Music Festival - full details at www.stratfordmusicfestival.com

Clara Sanabras’ music is a widely-performed contemporary retelling for children (and adults) of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, using Shakespeare’s themes of ‘loss and retrieval, exile and reunion’ as a ‘physiological journey of incredible relevance to modern times’.

A Hum About Mine Ears is an hour-long musical drawing on elements from blues and jazz to European folk. It takes some of The Tempest's ideas and themes - loss and retrieval, exile and reunion, relating them to Sanabras's own experiences as a modern woman and an emigrant.

Featuring twenty 9-12 year olds, an adult community choir, professional players from Orchestra of the Swan, soloist Clara Sanabras, and conductor Harvey Brough (of Harvey & the Wallbangers fame).
