City of Birmingham Choir
The City of Birmingham Choir, together with Lichfield Cathedral Young Voices and the Young Phoenix Singers are delighted to bring to the Elgar Hall two exciting and uplifting pieces of modern choral music. ‘Mass in Blue’ combines British composer Will Todd’s twin backgrounds of jazz and church music. Since its premier in 2003 it has been capturing the imagination of choirs and audiences worldwide with its unique setting of the liturgical Mass in jazz and 12 bar blues.
‘Freedom! The Power of Song’ is the fifth in the popular series of choral works from Alexander L’Estrange. This powerful and emotive work celebrates the vital role communal singing has played throughout history, bringing people together in solidarity at times of upheaval, struggle and change.
Venue: Elgar Concert Hall, The Bramall
