Directed by composer, arranger and educator Peter Churchill, the London Vocal Project is composed of exceptional students and alumni from jazz courses at London's Conservatoires. From a solid foundation in Gospel and Groove music, the London Vocal Project has developed into an impressively versatile ensemble with a constantly expanding repertoire. Since its inception in January 2008 it has rapidly become recognised as the leading contemporary jazz-vocal ensemble in the country. In addition to regular concerts in venues around London, recent highlights for the group include singing with Dame Cleo Laine and the late Sir Johnny Dankworth at the London Jazz Festival in 2009 (vocal arrangements by J.D.), a memorable performance of Kenny Wheeler's vocal suite 'Mirrors' with the great Norma Winstone MBE and a remarkable gig with Bobby McFerrin and Roger Treece in the British premiere of Bobby’s new album 'VOCAbuLarieS' at the Barbican. A very special treat this.
