Will Todd’s Mass in Blue is an upbeat setting of the latin mass for choir, soprano solo and jazz ensemble. A brilliant blend of driving jazz grooves and clear, strong, choral writing, it is fast establishing itself as a modern choral classic.
Mass in Blue has been performed well over 100 times around the world since its 2003 premiere and this is a wonderful opportunity to join a mass participation day, with a professional jazz band and the composer Will Todd, led by some of the country’s leading choral conductors. This Come and Sing event will be a chance for singers from around the country to come together under the leadership of choral conductors who will be directing one movement each.
There will be rehearsals throughout the day, followed by a performance in the evening. You don’t need to have sung Mass in Blue before to take part.

Participation is open to all and costs £20 per singer (£10 if you are under 21) plus an additional £5 for your event t-shirt if you would like one.
