10 February 2018
Fakenham Choral Society hosted a very special Come & Sing Day in February 2018 with composer Will Todd coming to Fakenham Academy to
lead a workshop day and performance of his popular jazz Mass in Blue. About 140 singers took part in the day some as young as nine and they
came from as far away as Essex, Northampton, Cheshire and Northumberland.
The overwhelming response from everyone taking part was — what a wonderful day's singing; how fantastic Will was in understanding
the parameters of a Come & Sing day and how helpful in getting everyone to have a go at singing Mass in Blue from the heart. The addition of
the musicians and soprano soloist for the performance just added icing on the cake and considering how many of the singers had never seen a
Mass in Blue score before it was fantastic. To sum up — a truly brilliant day!
