Lucky singers at Danesborough Chorus had the chance to work with the composer of their latest piece.

The group will perform the distinctive choral work ‘Mass in Blue’ on Saturday in St Mary’s Church, Woburn, and they had the rare privilege of being able to rehearse with composer Will Todd in preparation.

The composer’s own jazz trio will accompany the choir and soprano soloist Bethany Halliday.

The choir will also perform a selection of spirituals, and the Will Todd Trio will perform an instrumental jazz set.

‘Mass in Blue’ boasts an upbeat, modern and jazzy Latin setting – and while the jazz may be hot, the audience is invited to keep cool by bringing their own strawberries and champagne for the traditional summer concert break.

Tickets for the 7.30pm performance are £18 and £14 (reserved) and £10 (unreserved), including a free programme
