    Description: Mass in Blue

    Guildford Choral
    Conductor: Jonathan Willcocks
    Joanna Forbes L'Estrange

    Mass in Blue by Guildford composer Will Todd has quickly established itself as one of the most treasured of all recent choral works, and we are delighted that, for our very first concert in the beautiful auditorium of Guildford Baptist Church, Guildford Choral will be joined by the Will Todd Jazz Ensemble with the composer at the keyboard. Also in this concert will be another choral work by a British jazz legend, George Shearing - Songs and Sonnets – featuring texts by William Shakespeare. These seven settings, some a cappella, some with piano and string bass, are fresh, exciting, and very accessible. An evening with vibrant melodies, rhythm and energy at its heart.

    There will be a retiring collection in aid of Rainbow Trust.
