Programme Note

Commotio is excited to announce their first public concert under joint direction, with internationally renowned composer and choral expert, Bob Chilcott. Following the success of their last joint project, The Rose in the Middle of Winter CD, which topped the Specialist Classical Chart in 2013, Commotio will be recording a new CD with Bob Chilcott later this year.

In addition to the a capella sound Commotio is best known for, the choir will combine forces with acclaimed jazz pianist Alexander Hawkins and jazz trio to perform Chilcott’s  jazz works including Nidaros Jazz Mass and Jazz Songs of Innocence.

Commemorating 400 years since Shakespeare’s death, Commotio will breathe new life into Shakespeare’s familiar words with contemporary choral settings by Leslie, Hyde, Larsen and Łukaszewski.

Come, join Commotio and Bob Chilcott for a fantastic evening of music!
