Palmeri and Todd

There’s plenty to get your hips swaying in our sultry Latin-American and jazz concert at GLive this November. We’ll be singing Mass in Blue by acclaimed international composer and Guildford resident, Will Todd. This has fast become one of the most popular modern choral works around the world, and we’re delighted to be joined by Latin-American music specialists, the Santiago Quartet, international bandoneon player Julian Rowlands and Tango bass player Tom Mason for this, and our other programmed work, Misatango by Palmeri. And if that’s not exciting enough, there will be live Tango dancing from duo Richard Manuel and Paula Duarte, who performed in Guildford to huge acclaim in the 2018 Spring Music Festival.

Palmeri and Todd

Thank you to all for a memorable night of tango and jazz!

Here are some of many plaudits received:

A wonderful evening, I thought. The programme worked really well, with the different fusion styles complementing each other. Excellent choral singing and the band did a great job too. Bravo to you for holding us all together. I had lots of great feedback after the concert and it seemed like a pretty happy audience.
