We are very proud to have been invited by Lincoln Jazz Festival to perform Duke Ellington’s Sacred Music with The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Ellington Orchestra under musical director Jeremy Price together with the Lincoln Cathedral Choir under musical director Aric Prentice.
This performance also features our Gospel Choir, guest vocalist Vimala Rowe with two soloists from the Conservatoire’s Opera Department, plus John Turville (piano) and jazz dancer Perry Louis.
Ellington’s wonderful Sacred Music is both serious and swinging. It is a reverent and hip body of jazz composition, written late in his career.
