will todd’s Mass in blue
Mass in Blue is an upbeat jazz setting of the latin mass text for soprano soloist and SATB chorus and jazz combo. As soprano soloist at First St. Andrew's United Church, Sonja was thrilled to perform this vocally demanding, but exhilarating work with the composer, Will Todd, himself at the piano. Mass in Blue for Sonja is her two musical worlds colliding in the best of ways.
