Jazz for the World

November 6, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

St Andrew’s and St George’s West Choir sings an innovative programme of contemporary and classical jazz, accompanied by pianist Chris Harding.

The programme includes Will Todd’s Mass in Blue and music by Ellington and Fanshawe.

Minister (and jazz aficionado) Rev Ian Y Gilmour introduces the pieces.

Directed by Brigitte Harris.

Free entry, everyone welcome.

“Will Todd’s Mass in Blue is an upbeat setting of the latin mass for SATB choir, soprano solo and jazz trio or ensemble.  It is a brilliant blend of driving jazz grooves and clear, strong, choral writing against which the solo piano and solo soprano voice weave and blend in a delightful aural tapestry.”

This is only the second Scottish performance of Will Todd’s Mass in Blue – don’t miss!
