Join Worcester College Choir for a 20th anniversary performance of Bob Chilcott's A Little Jazz Mass, conducted by the composer himself.

One of the most celebrated contemporary choral composers, Bob Chilcott has a long-held affinity with jazz. With a characterful accompaniment and a swinging rhythm, A Little Jazz Mass offers up the Latin Missa brevis as you've never it them before. A Little Jazz Mass has been performed across the world in both concerts and liturgical settings, including at St Paul's Cathedral. The piece was written for the 2004 Crescent City Choral Festival and premiered at St Louis Cathedral in New Orleans.

Step into the heart of College life in the Dining Hall, an architectural gem completed in the late 18th century and meticulously restored to its original Georgian splendour in 2018. This historic venue is easily accessible, located at the College's entrance, and has ramp access for wheelchair users.

Doors open at 7.15pm, allowing you time to mingle with friends and enjoy a drink before the concert begins. Please take advantage of our cloakroom and bathroom facilities to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
