A full day of choral celebration at Battersea Arts Centre. Events run all day from 11.30am and culminate in an evening performance in the Grand Hall at 6.30pm. 

Twenty years ago, composer and jazz musician Will Todd premiered his “Mass In Blue”. Since then it has gone on to become a favourite of choirs and audiences around the world.

Battersea Sings will draw to a close with a performance of Mass In Blue, with Will Todd himself at the piano, alongside his trio and star soprano Hilary Cronin. The choir will be made up of members of Battersea Choral Society, the Festival Chorus, the Fulham and Hammersmith Choral Society, and many other choirs besides. In addition, the concert will features performances from Real Voices, who have established themselves as a South London powerhouse choir!

If you are a confident singer and would like to participate in this incredible concert, then you can! To sign up to perform Will Todd’s ‘Mass In Blue’ alongside members of several South London choirs, follow this link to buy a ticket to “come-and-sing”. Please note that rehearsal time is limited, and you will need to supply your own music.
