Following a triumphant performance of The Armed Man (Karl Jenkins) in 2012, English Philharmonia and Chorus (the Choral Societies of Chorleywood and Berkhamsted) return to Watford Colosseum on Saturday 10 May with another exciting programme. Carl Orff’s dramatic and engaging Carmina Burana is both popular and instantly recognisable (think ‘Old Spice’ or ‘The X-Factor’) and shares top billing with George Gershwin’s thrilling and well-loved Rhapsody in Blue, for piano and jazz band. Adding pizazz to the evening is the world premiere of a new jazz piece, The Seasons, by Sebastian Weiss, commissioned by the choirs especially for this concert.
