Supertonic is proud to present "Minor Alterations", its first entirely jazz-based concert.

Far from the same jazz choir numbers you've all heard before, this one-night-only show pulls the power of jazz into songs from totally different origins, complete with a three-piece combo and the effervescent vocals of soprano Imogen Thirlwall.

Will Todd's Mass in Blue twists the standard Latin Mass into a punchy uplifting jazz ride, delving into scorching blues, up-tempo beats and swinging into a jazz waltz. This enormously popular music doesn't hold anything back - the soaring voices of the 56-strong choir interplays with the dramatic soprano soloist, supported by the rich blues and driving groove of the band.

Paired with this is a series of well-known songs reinvigorated through the jazz idiom. My Favourite Things becomes the story of a modern day jazz singer, balancing the demands of the every day with a rich musical life; Scarborough Fair takes the popular Simon and Garfunkel melody down a haunting path - a treat for fans of folk and jazz alike; Queen's Crazy Little Thing Called Love remains familiar and toe-tappingly catchy.

Supertonic's singers pride themselves on presenting appealing, varied and high-quality choral music to Wellington and beyond. Despite being less than three years old, the choir has already made a name for itself as a "new phenomenon on the Wellington choral scene". Equally at home with traditional classical music such as Vaughan Williams' Mass in G and Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb, Supertonic enjoys presenting more boundary-pushing programmes such as Fighting in the Dance Hall, a pairing of arrangements from Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and David Bowie’s Hunky Dory.

The choir's director is Isaac Stone, a teacher of classroom music and leader of the choral programme at Tawa College in Wellington. Isaac places a premium on making choral music that is accessible but challenging - creating concerts that inspire both new and experienced singers, as well as capturing and captivating a new audience for choral music in Wellington.
