Joint Jazz Ensemble/Jazz Choir Concert: Saturday 23 November 2019, 7.30pm @ St Andrew’s, Fulham Fields, Greyhound Rd, London W14 9SA.
To lift the November temperature, the Autumn concert from the Addison Jazz Choir and Jazz Ensemble with our hot trio, will feature songs from the Great American Songbook. Some great songs don’t get the exposure they deserve, and our selection includes songwriters George & Ira Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael, Harold Arlen, Rogers & Hammerstein and Cole Porter.
The Ensemble will be singing favourites like Someone to Watch Over Me, Stardust, The Nearness of You and I Could Write a Book; there’s Nice ‘n’ Easy (Frank Sinatra) and I’ve Got the World on a String (Tony Bennett and Ella Fitzgerald).
The Jazz Choir’s great numbers include On the Sunny Side of the Street and Two Sleepy People (Dean Martin), both arranged for us by Jill Jarman; My Favourite Things (John Coltrane and Julie Andrews); You’d be so Nice to Come Home to (Nina Simone); I Got It Bad, music by Duke Ellington, and Big Spender, made legend by Shirley Bassey.
Both choirs will join for a medley of Happy Days Are Here Again and Get Happy.
Tickets are £10 Adults / £3 under 16 available in advance – or £12 / £3 at the Door
