Music: Classical
The title of this concert, A Little Jazz / A Little Tango, is self-explanatory. The Choir is joined by piano icons Miles Black (jazz) and Linda Lee Thomas (tango) and a great rhythm section for a taste of choral music from the lighter side of the repertoire. Famous names Astor Piazzolla and George Shearing will anchor the program, with the premiere of Elise Letourneau's Four Love Poems by E.E. Cummings, and some special treats and surprises from Choir favourite Bob Chilcott and others.
