Message from Sara:

Dear Friends,

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.

BASCA/BBC Singers concert for Radio 3 broadcast will be including a performance of my choral piece ‘The Body Windows’.

A Magical Musical Story Box (feat. Kate Mullins of The Puppini Sisters on vocals) will be performed at both

‘Losing You’ on Jamie Cullum BBC Radio 2

Jamie Cullum plays ‘Losing You’, the title track from the full album out now on Impossible Ark Records:

‘What a superb track that is… It’s a really interesting record, more of a Rhythm and Blues, country-blues influence, as well as the jazz in there on this whole album.  Beautifully produced, it’s a wonderful sounding record, it has some real eclectic moments on it… A really great step forward for Sara and I highly recommend you listen to the whole album.’ Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2, 30/06/15.

Sara’s Blog: birth of baby Naomi

Dear Friends,

Tim and I are very happy to announce the birth of Naomi Preeti Giles, born at home in the early hours of May 20th 2012.
She is a super baby! We have had a lovely time getting to know her and Eleanor is thrilled to be a big sister.
Thank you to everyone for their cards and messages, your good wishes are much appreciated.
It has been a pretty hectic couple of weeks (as would be expected!) but extremely happy too.

Lots of love to all, and hoping you are all well.

Sara and Tim xx
