ALLE CHOIR LONDON feat Kevin Fox & NORDIC BLUE (NORWAY)
“A very good small jazz choir with a tight sound and solid swing”. These comments by the judges at the Voice Festival 2017 sum up what Alle Choir London is all about.
Since musical director Marta Mathea Radwan founded Alle Choir London in 2015, they’ve added a wealth of jazz classics, modern vocal compositions, and traditional material to their repertoire – mostly a cappella, occasionally with cool instrumental backing. As well as jazz, they sing traditional material (such as winter and Christmas music) – with a non-traditional twist.
They won grand prix of the Top Star Festival Online and the 3rd prize in the Unlock Your Talent competition. In 2017 Alle Choir London was picked to compete on TV show Pitch Battle on BBC One.
For the concert on April 29 at JAZZ CAFE POSK, they prepared a mix of standards, Polish jazz songs, and a cappella versions of Chopin's works. All in jazz arrangements and with a large dose of improvisation. For this occasion, a former “Swingle” singer Kevin Fox will join the group.
