Review – 8th October 2016 Singing Workshop: Will Todd

One of the UK’s leading contemporary composers, Will Todd, visited the Island last Saturday, 8th October, to hold a workshop for choral singers at St Catherine’s Church, Ventnor.

The event, which had been organised by the Isle of Wight Cantata Choir, was well attended by singers from several singing groups and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Will led the workshop with enthusiasm and verve through a variety of his works, many of which have a jazz theme. The afternoon finished with a performance of his Jazz Missa Brevis, a work that was written by Will for Portsmouth Cathedral Choir.

One member of the choir summed the day up on Twitter: ‘Great day with Will Todd today, feeling happy, jazzy and exhausted!’
