Mass in Blue

“A stunningly flexible voice, flawless musicianship and as if that wasn’t enough
a lovely personality too! 
Thanks for your wonderful singing!”
Will Todd, composer of Mass in Blue

“Joanna Forbes L’Estrange is a fabulous soloist who delivers with great feeling”
Music Web International

 “Voice like an angel that has power when she needs it, expression, clarity, can soar to the top of any vaulted ceiling and a range that allows her to hit top B flats for fun. An incredible sound, so suited to the music that Todd might have written it for just for her.”
Edinburgh Fringe Review

Joanna Forbes L’Estrange is a London-based jazz/classical crossover singer who is highly in demand as the soprano soloist for Will Todd’s jazz mass Mass in Blue, performing the piece many times a year with chamber choirs and choral societies throughout the UK. As a former member of The Swingle Singers, her voice is perfectly suited to the combination of classical soprano and jazz style which the piece demands. She has regularly appeared as soloist with the composer’s own jazz band, the Will Todd Trio, as well as with the Alexander L’Estrange Trio, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) and for the Scottish premiere of the piece at the 2015 Edinburgh International Festival. She received glowing reviews for her recording of the work with the Nonsuch Singers conducted by Tom Bullard.
