Shaftesbury Composer Presents Online Eco-Themed Opera

Shaftesbury composer Karen Wimhurst is known for her work with our town’s Community and Palida Choirs. Next weekend, locals will be able to experience more of this talented musician’s work.

Karen has written an opera, which tells the powerful story of the problems with plastics. The opera, Synthetica, was named after a 1940s magazine article Karen uncovered.
