AFTER making a name for herself on some of the biggest stages in the world, Thame harpist Sarah Goss is coming home to play for the first time in 16 years.

The former Lord Williams’s School pupil has performed at the Royal Albert Hall, the Sydney Opera House and even opened the world’s first seven star hotel in Dubai.

But she is now returning to her roots to play at the Christchurch in Thame on Sunday.

She said: “It (Thame) is a brilliant town and I am really excited to be playing to an audience that I know.

“I have been really lucky to play at the places I have done but I very much prefer playing in the smaller, intimate venues because the harp is more suited to that environment.”

Goss last played in Thame as an 18-year-old, but has been eager to be back on the centre stage once again.

She moved back to the town five years ago and has been pushing for a performance ever since.

The show will be a mix of Goss’ favourite pieces, including classic harp repertoire and her own arrangements of modern songs.

It begin at 3.30pm on Sunday, with tickets costing £7 for adults on the door.
