LONDON Southbank Centre / Royal Festival Hall
The Festival’s epic opening-night gala once again promises an extravaganza of stellar performers celebrating timeless songs and singing.
The Festival’s 42-piece orchestra provides the musical setting with sophistication and elegance, while the stellar cast of voices and soloists perform a repertoire of flair with Guy Barker’s exquisite arrangements.
Jazz Voice has featured superstars as Seal, Lisa Stansfield, Lea DeLaria, Zara McFarlane, Jamie Cullum, Paloma Faith, Gregory Porter, Angélique Kidjo and Mica Paris in the past, so get ready for this year’s surprise line-up!
‘ 'A parade of wonderful jazz singers, backed by a luxuriantly big orchestra, singing two dozen or so of the greatest popular songs ever written. It’s a sure-fire recipe for bliss.' ’
‘ 'It would be difficult to imagine a more impressive curtain-raiser to the EFG London Jazz Festival than Jazz Voice' ’
