    Piano Recital: Clare Hammond

    1:00 pmThe Nave, Southwell Minster

    Acclaimed by The Telegraph as a pianist of “amazing power and panache”, Clare Hammond is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances and has developed a “reputation for brilliantly imaginative concert programmes” (BBC Music Magazine, ‘Rising Star’). In 2016, she won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artist Award in recognition of her outstanding achievements. Clare was brought up in Nottingham and played the oboe in the Nottingham Youth Orchestra where she met the trumpeter Marcus Farnsworth. In 2015 Clare made her film debut as the younger version of Maggie Smith’s character Miss Shepherd in the Alan Bennett film adaptation The Lady in the Van.
