Kenny Wheeler: The Making of "Mirrors"
It would be easy to picture Mirrors winning over crowds in almost any type of festival setting: on balmy summer nights in the castle at the Edinburgh Festival, on the main stage at Glastonbury at sunset or at the champion of staging premieres, Cheltenham Festival. If the Mirrors project proves anything, it's surely that with dedicated people and hard work the seemingly impossible can come true. As Lewis Carroll's Queen told Alice, "Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
The launch of Mirrors, featuring Wheeler, Winstone, the London Vocal Project and jazz quartet will be held at Kings Place, London, on May 25th, 2013 at 8 p.m.
Pete Churchill, director of the London Vocal Project will give a pre- concert talk in the St. Pancrass Room at 7 p.m. The talk is free to concert ticket holders.
