One of the UK’s most talented young pianists comes to Ely Cathedral to play a colourful concert in aid of the Isle of Ely Arts Festival.
Clare Hammond is a local musician with a double first class honours in music from Cambridge University.
“When I first heard her play, I was so impressed with Clare Hammond that I was determined to invite her to perform Ely during the Festival season,” says Isle of Ely Festival chair Sheila Friend-Smith.
“We were delighted that not only did she accept our invitation to do so, but is performing to raise money for the Festival.”
She is in great demand both as a soloist and chamber musician and described as an acclaimed pianist of “amazing power and panache” with a “reputation for brilliantly imaginative concert programmes”.
