Sing God A Simple Song

Chapel of Ascension, Chichester University, College Lane, Chichester

Sunday October 28, time to be announced

Tickets: prices and booking information to be announced

Performed as part of the Bernstein In Chichester Festival marking the centenary of the birth of the West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein, this is an original musical entertainment devised by composer and pianist Carl Davis (pictured) and directed by visual artist Pamela Howard. Taking its title from a line in Bernstein’s Mass, it features six singers from the university and depicts seven aspects of his often conflicted musical life – with some surprises. It explores his relationships with America, New York, Broadway, the movies, politics, love and God. And as a salute to the role model of his youth, Davis evokes the composer at home – ashtrays overflowing, handwritten manuscripts everywhere – as the singers realise his imagination. The informal seating at this event references the supper clubs Bernstein frequented. Picture: Jasper Fry.
