Marcus Wyatt, dirigent

Metropole Orkest has once again been invited for the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. This year the orchestra plays ‘The South African Jazz Songbook’. This project was played before by the MO Big Band but will now be performed by the entire orchestra.

Celebrated South African trumpeter, conductor and SAMA Award-winner Marcus Wyatt leads the Metropole Orkest in a showcase of the best of outh African jazz – a cross-section of a vibrant and strikingly diverse scene. There will be music by artists including ‘father of South African Jazz’ Hugh Masekele, Cry Freedom’s Jonas Gwangwa, Genre-crossing composer Abdullah Ibrahim, the Blue Notes’ Dudu Pukwama and Johnny Dyani, and saxophonist Winston Mankunku. Vocalist Siyabonga Mthembu – lead singer of Shabaka and the Ancestors and performance art band The Brother Move On- makes a special appearance, together with Mercury Prize – nominated singer ESKA, star saxophonist Soweto Kinch and up and coming tuba player Theon Cross.
