thank you for all your well wishes and kindnesses over the past few months. Life with a brain tumour has been a challenging experience, but have received lots of incredible medical help. My personal performance of my songs has had to end (for now) as there are various symptoms still ongoing. However, some works composed before this time are being performed in the next few weeks, which is nice. Here are the details.
Sara has co-written a jazz/interactive drama show for young children. Titled ‘A Magical Musical Story Box’, the next performance is at the Cambridge International Jazz Festival 2016, with two sessions on Sunday 27th November. Click here for ticketing information.
