Music that sings across centuries will feature in a unique pairing of jazz legend Liane Carroll and classical composer Edward Elgar for a concert guaranteed to transport you out of the isolation blues.
The evening is an all-star showcase for the the latest commission by North London’s dynamic community choir, Vox Holloway. It features a new choral arrangement of Elgar’s 1899 song cycle Sea Pictures by Vox’s musical supremo Harvey Brough, alongside jazz standards and originals from one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary performers.
Carroll – described in the Guardian as “a powerful, soul-inflected performer with an Ella Fitzgerald-like improv athleticism and an emotional frankness on ballads” – will lead a line-up that also features Vox Holloway’s own all-star soloists Christina Gill, Clara Sanabras and Harvey Brough.
They are joined by James Maddren on drums, and Andy Hamill on bass.
Good news. You can now join the first ever virtual Vox rehearsal on Youtube, free of charge, at any time that suits you, wherever you are in the world, until Friday May 15.
We’re singing music by the great Liane Carroll – “a powerful, soul-inflected performer with an Ella Fitzgerald-like improv athleticism and an emotional frankness on ballads” (The Guardian). “Still frustratingly little-known” (The Independent)
The 45-minute session has everything you need to feel part of our wonderful choir: a warm-up by the inspiring Christina Gill, a score to read as you sing. There are separate sessions for each vocal section, conducted by the one and only Harvey Brough.
On Tuesday 5th May at 7.00 our Summer term starts, but this time online.
We will be learning songs by the amazing Liane Carroll – and we’re exploring the possibility of an on-line concert at some point. Though this is a huge challenge! If you are interested in joining us, send us an email email@example.com
