Voices of Jazz brings together three remarkable ensembles. VoCollective, a young, contemporary a capella group, emerged from university with a soulful sound and vibrant energy, performing in the UK and in Carnegie Hall in New York and representing UK in competitions.
The Civil Service Choir – directed by Stephen Hall – no strangers to London music, make their London Jazz Festival debut with music by Chilcott & Todd accompanied by BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year Alexander Bone and the highly rated Chris Ingham Trio.
The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music for over 50 years. The seven young singers in today’s London-based group maintain the same innovative spirit as five-times Grammy winners and are recognised as masters of their craft. “One of the best close harmony groups in the world” – Gareth Malone
