The Threepenny Opera, by Kurt Weill, was first performed in 1920s Berlin and inspired the hit musical Cabaret.
The orchestral suite from the opera incorporates a mixture of classical, popular and dance music with an overlay of European jazz and includes one of the best known of all popular songs, The Ballad Of Mack The Knife.
Another song to get your toes tapping is the Laud To The Nativity, which is one of the most charming and successful pieces by the Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, best known for his orchestral works The Fountains Of Rome and The Pines Of Rome.
Gorgeous choral harmonies combine in this spectacular presentation of the Christmas story as seen through the eyes of the shepherds.
No other 20th century composer was more influential or dominated his art in the way that Igor Stravinsky did during his long career and his rumoured affair with Coco Chanel is said to have inspired the creation of her most famous perfume.
Stravinsky's Mass was intended by the composer to be sung in church but is more often performed in concert and was premiered at La Scala, Milan.
It was written for the unusual combination of mixed voices and wind ensemble and is rarely performed by a large choir.
Tickets cost £15 (reserved centre seats) and £10 (unreserved side aisles) are available via choir members or from Eve & Ranshaw, in Louth, and the Caxton Theatre Ticket Office, within Grimsby Central Library, on 01472 346251.

Music lovers aged 18 or under can occupy a side aisle seat free of charge or pay a concessionary rate for a reserved seat.
It begins at 7.30pm and refreshments will be available during the interval.
