Item Type:Performance
Additional Information:Camerata Chamber Choir’s first offering for 2017 features work by two jazz masters, with arrangements of jazz classics by New Zealand’s own Wayne Senior, and A Little Jazz Mass by England’s Bob Chilcott. In a move exciting for us, we will be accompanied by a jazz trio ( Crystal Choi on piano, David Hodkinson on bass and Jason Orme on drums). We are also delighted that singer Renée Brennan (ex-Tadpole), again a jazz afficionado, joins us as soloist. Wayne’s long and illustrious career has many highlights in terms of composing, arranging and conducting, with his work being played all over the world. We will sing his arrangements of a number of classics, the mood moving from I’m beginning to See the Light to No Moon at All , from drifting leaves (The Autumn Leaves) to Broadway (Crazy Rhythm), from the first invitation to the fullness of love and saying goodbye. Chilcott’s A Little Jazz Mass combines the traditional Latin of the Mass (Missa brevis) with twenty-first century jazz, and is described as highly effective and original by publisher Oxford University Press. The choir has been loving the great treat of being tutored in jazz by Wayne (also singing) alongside our conductor, Jenny Firth. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we are.
