Nelson Choral Society & LVR Jazz Band: Sunday May 11, 7 pm, Capitol Theatre. Tickets $15 (age 12 & under free)

The Nelson Choral Society departs from its usual repertoire to embrace jazz at this Mother’s Day concert. Sharing the program are the LV Rogers Jazz Band, under director Tim Bullen, and Cottonwood Singers. The band will showcase pieces it has been preparing for the upcoming MusicFest national competition in Vancouver.

The choir’s featured selection is “A Little Jazz Mass” by Bob Chilcott, one of the busiest and most popular choral composers and conductors in Britain today. This sacred Latin mass, gloriously brought into the jazz idiom, will be accompanied by Doug Stephenson on bass, Steven Parish on drums and Christoph Martens on piano. It embraces a variety of jazz styles – alternately swinging, grooving, sitting back, humming along and drawing inspiration from the Blues.
