Over 250 singers and musicians come together at Lincoln Cathedral to raise money for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.
Over 250 singers and musicians will come together to perform The City Garden at Lincoln Cathedral. Award winning choirs Scunthorpe Junior Choir and the Choirs of Lincoln Minster School will join the Salisbury Community Choir under the direction of Jeremy Backhouse, one of Britain's leading choral conductors.
The City Garden is a cantata composed by Will Todd, one of Britain's finest young composers.
It takes the listener on a romantic journey through the seasons with different moods, temperatures and weather supplying the light and shade. It combines a foot-tapping mix of jazz and gospel with unforgettable melodies and lyrics, and links the four seasons and the human journey from Adam's fall to man's redemption; it is a moving and spiritual work on many levels. It's a wonderful piece to sing and is a vibrant, emotional and arresting piece to listen to.
Salisbury Community Choir has in excess of 150 members, and has a real community focus, having raised in excess of £100,000 for a range of charities. For their Lincoln Cathedral performance the choir will be donating all proceeds to Lincoln's local charity St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.
The jazz scene comes to Lincoln for its annual 9-day celebration of jazz music featuring UK and international acts including The Big Chris Barber Band.
Jazz artists, bands and experts will be performing, often for free, in venues across Lincoln, in May.
