Summer concert : Tudor anthems and all that jazz …
We were a little unsure about whether we could do justice to a jazz piece – Will Todd’s Mass in blue. We need not have worried – our performance brought many in the audience to their feet! Our first-ever standing ovation?! What made it such a thrilling performance was Georgie Malcolm’s superb jazz soprano singing, a terrific jazz quartet (Ollie Nicholls on alto sax, Elliott Rooney on piano, Esther Ng on double bass and Darren Hasson-Davis on drums) and Sally’s energetic interpretation of the score.
The Tudor anthems (Byrd, Tallis, Dowland and the likes) just proved how versatile we are!
The photo shows Georgie Malcolm – we think you’ll be hearing that name again ….
Next concert: Friday 14 December
