Brussels Vocal Project is a collective of three singers, Elsa Grégoire, Anu Junnonen and François Vaiana. They create projects which focuses on original vocal music. They aim to expand the vocal possibilities through collaborations with different singers, instrumentalists and composers.
Their first project “The Art Of Love” is an A Cappella tribute to the great Belgian guitarist  Pierre Van Dormael. The repertoire was written for six vocalists by leading Belgian jazz composers such as Fabrizio Cassol, Nathalie Loriers and Diederik Wissels.
They are now collaborating with the American drummer and composer John Hollenbeck on material written exclusively for five voices and a drum set. John Hollenbeck and Brussels Vocal Project want to revisit this ancient orchestration through compositions based on modernized popular tales.
Brussels Vocal Project have performed their repertoire in many concert halls and venues in Belgium, Germany and Finland. They have also been called on numerous occasions to collaborate with bands such as David Linx and Diederik Wissels, Wildbirds and Peacedrums, and for different major events like the Magritte awards for cinema and the Floreales by the city of Brussels.

“…C’est la 
version 
moderne,
 très 
actuelle
 et
 très 
personnelle, 
des
 grands 
groupes
 vocaux
 aux quels 
on
 pourrait 
peut­-être 
faire 
référence 
comme 
Les 
Double 
Six, 
Lambert, 
Hendricks
&
Ross 
ou 
Manhattan
 Transfer des 
bonnes 
années…
 Mais
 au
 swing
 de
 ceux ­ci, 
il
 faut 
ajouter 
des 
harmonies 
complexes 
et
 très 
contemporaines.
 Les 
thèmes
 sont 
riches 
de
 nuances
 et 
ne
 se
cachent 
jamais
 derrière 
la 
facilité.


…La 
musique
 circule,
 se
 transmet
 et
 s’échange
 entre 
les
 vocalistes. 
Chacun 
tient
 son 
rôle 
à 
la
 perfection. 
Ils
 s’écoutent,
 se 
répondent,
 se 
laissent 
le 
temps
 de 
respirer,
 de 
souffler,
 de 
s’épanouir.
 On
 passe 
de 
l’intimiste 
au
 swinguant.
 Du 
mystérieux
 au 
lumineux. 
Du
 tendre 
au 
mordant. 
En 
toute
 poésie.
