The Jay Singers at Holy Trinity Church, Blythburgh

Venue: Holy Trinity Church, Blythburgh IP19 9LP link
A melodious and witty April Fools Day concert by one of East Anglia's leading chamber choirs, celebrating the delights of the season.

Floral and springtime classics in the first half will include Morley's well-known 'April is in My Mistress Face' (1594), Pearsall's peerless 'Lay a Garland' (1840), Saint-Saens' tender 'Les Fleurs et les Arbres' (1882) and Britten's exquisitely inventive 'Five Flower Songs' (1950). Showcasing The Jay Singers' reputation for light music, the second half offers entertaining discoveries: Seiber's absurdist trio of 'Nonsense Songs', the liberated elan of Toch's 'Geographical Fugue', stylish arrangements of 'Tea for Two' and 'Over the Rainbow', and even settings of childhood favourites, 'Teddy Bears' Picnic' and 'Old MacDonald had a Farm'.

Plus readings specially chosen by Naomi Jaffa (former long-time director of the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival and currently Chair of The Jays).
Ticket Details: £12.50 on the door or by calling 07711 888682
