Portsmouth Choral Union

Bernstein – Mass
Bernstein – West Side Story – a choral suite.
Ramirez – Missa Criolla
With Southern Pro Musica

The thread running through this concert is rhythm – lively, infectious, jazzy, joyful. It links church and theatre music in a celebration of song.

Ramirez’s jubilant setting of the Mass is infused with the rhythms of South America. It was made famous by Jose Carreras, but we are just as lucky to have the fantastic young tenor Anthony Flaum joining us for this performance. Bernstein’s West Side Story contains his best-loved melodies, presented here in a medley showcasing the choir’s lyrical sound. Bernstein’s Mass is not a traditional setting, but a dramatic work exploring faith and doubt. It is infused with an eclectic mix of musical styles, performed here in its intended theatrical setting.

Driving the music along will be a team of percussionists from the acclaimed Southern Pro Musica.
