Celebrating their 40th anniversary, the acclaimed Crouch End Festival Chorus bring a very special programme to the splendour of King’s College Chapel. 

Under the baton of co-founder and Music Director David Temple OBE, the choir performs Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concert, blending traditional religious musical forms with the language of jazz. The piece has a long association with Cambridge after Ellington and his band performed it at a concert in Great St Mary’s Church in 1967. 

The sublime choral music of McCarthy, Glass and Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel promise to make this an unforgettable event.

This concert is presented as part of the Cambridge Summer Music Festival
