Picnic to MASS IN BLUE
Would you like to listen to one of the most exciting pieces of choral music written in recent years, and enjoy a picnic whilst being serenaded by one of the county’s finest chamber choirs? Then you should come along to Ely Consort’s summer concert in St Mary’s Church, Burwell on Saturday 1st July!
The concert begins with Will Todd’s Mass in Blue, which has taken the choral world by storm since its first performance. Written for choir, soprano soloist (Elenor Bowers-Jolley) and a jazz quartet of piano, bass, drums and saxophone, Mass in Blue is a dynamic, uplifting, and highly popular jazz setting of the Latin mass featuring driving grooves and blues harmonies. For the second half, the audience are invited to bring a picnic (food & drink, incl.alcohol. – bring your picnic blanket (preferred)/chairs) and enjoy listening to Ely Consort singing outside in the grounds of the church. And do not fear – there is a wet-weather ‘indoor picnic’ plan!
