Join me, the Cockfosters Community Chorus, and a seventeen-piece big band for some epic tunes from the world of cinema, some newly jazzed-up psalms, and some classic jazz standards. There will be a short pause for thought to think about the greatest story ever told. Rehearsal to sing in the choir will begin on Thursday 23rd May in Christ Church House – free for those joining us for the first time, and £20 for those who have sung with us before.
Join us for a fantastic evening of showtunes, operatic arias, and lots of funk and Motown in what promises to be yet another year of wonderfully eclectic music. Hosted by the inimitable Andy Pritchard. I’m looking forward to accompanying lots of singers on the piano, performing a comedy patter-song(!) and playing some sax in the Groovers’ funky second-half set. Get your dancing shoes on!
Playing saxophone and clarinet with the All Souls Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall for the biannual Prom Praise for Schools event, sharing the good news of Jesus with children, their parents, and teachers from across London – it’s going to be amazing!
Join Michael as he conducts the Cockfosters Community Chorus and Orchestra for their annual carol services at Christ Church Cockfosters. Services are at 6pm and 8pm and will feature classic Christmas carols along with a mix of classical and contemporary choral music.
The Impossible Groovers’ annual fundraiser for Sunday Schools in South Africa takes place with the band bringing some classic funk and soul grooves to the dance floor. Michael will be playing the sax, as well as accompanying some soloists on the piano. As ever, this promises to be a fantastic evening for a good cause – let me know if you’d like to know more details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Michael will be leading a composition course, guiding a number of young composers as they prepare new compositions which will be premiered at the Handel and Hendrix Museum for this staple annual concert. Details to follow.
