A musical score composed by international concert pianist Barry Douglas for one of Seamus Heaney's last projects is set to stun arts fans.

The 12th Festival at Clandeboye is under way in the charming surroundings of the Courtyard at the Clandeboye Estate outside Bangor.

It brings talented young musicians from all around the globe to learn from some of the best tutors in the world. In Five Fables Live! musicians will play alongside animations brought to life with the help of Holywood-based animation company Flickerpix.

Artistic director Mr Douglas said: "Based on the 15th century poems by Scottish poet Robert Henryson and translated by Seamus Heaney, it was a privilege for me to compose this score for one of Seamus's last projects. The narrator is actor Adrian Dunbar and Marie-Louise Muir will compere the event."

The full programme is available at www.camerata-ireland.com, while tickets are vailable from the Grand Opera House box office at goh.co.uk/clandeboye-festival or 028 9024 1919.

There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
