We have an exciting line up of professional jazz musicians for our performance of Will Todd’s Mass in Blue on Saturday 14th July!
Hannah Davey, sings the soprano solo, which is a major part of the work and has great moments of interplay with the choir. Hannah has the rare talent of being equally at home singing classical and jazz music. As well as professional singing, Hannah works with the charity ‘Music for Autism’which provides high calibre performance for children and adults with special needs.
Our Jazz Trio consists of Chris Corcoran, piano, Mike Green on upright bass and Dave Wilkes on drums.
Chris is well known in the Birmingham area as a director or accompanist for musical theatre. He enjoys arranging and composing jazz music, and has played and toured with many bands.
Mike’s experience varies from small intimate Jazz Clubs to appearing on national TV. In recent years he has been touring and recording with Gypsy jazz guitarist Remi Harris.
Dave was playing in the junior section of the Midlands Jazz Orchestra as young as 6 years of age! In more recent years he’s played with many bands on tour, and in theatre for shows such as ‘Legally Blonde’ and ‘Back to the 80s’ in Birmingham.
We can’t wait to perform ‘Mass in Blue’ with such exciting musicians!
