Michael Ball to headline Gershwin Greats night as part of Kenwood Concerts 2013
Michael Ball, the legend of West End and Broadway musicals, has been revealed this morning as the headline act for the closing night of summer concerts at Kenwood House.
The two-time Olivier Award winner will perform at Summertime – An Evening Of Gershwin, the final night of the Live By The Lake concert season taking place in Kenwood’s grounds over two weekends at the end of August, following a break last year.
He will be supported by West End and Broadway stars Kerry Ellis, Gina Beck and David Shannon, who between them have performed leading roles in Wicked, We Will Rock You, Phantom Of The Opera, Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar and Miss Saigon.
The night wraps up six concerts which take in the whole gamut from pop and rock to choral and classical performances.
Resurgent indie-rock legends Suede and pop-rock stars Keane headline on August 23 and 25 respectively, with The Royal Choral Society and The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra performing on August 24, when a “firework spectaular” is promised.
