Banish those winter blues with a foot-stomping concert of jazz-inspired choral music. Will Todd‘s Mass in Blue combines driving jazz rhythms with strong choral writing and a soaring soprano soloist, the virtuoso Bethany Halliday. Karl Jenkins’s A Parliament of Owls is full of catchy melodies and exciting percussion, and John Rutter‘s Birthday Madrigals are a fitting tribute to the great jazz pianist George Shearing.
With the Will Todd Trio, Will Todd piano Conductor John Gibbons
