Africa Utopia

  • Southbank Centre Queen Elizabeth Hall (map)

Chineke! Orchestra returns to Queen Elizabeth Hall and Africa Utopia in an exhilarating, jazz-infused programme.

Wayne Marshall conducts the Chineke! Orchestra in works by Copland, Gershwin, Ibert, Julian Joseph, and Kurt Weill, featuring American pianist Stewart Goodyear. 

Copland’s theatrical and catchy Music for the Theater opens the concert, and Marshall leads the Orchestra in two of classical music’s most entertaining works: Gershwin’s virtuoso jazz version of Rhapsody in Blue, featuring Stewart Goodyear in his QEH debut, and Ibert’s entertaining Divertissement.

Julian Joseph, whose innovative and classically infused music appeals to global audiences, also presents the world premiere of ‘Carry That Sound’ at this concert.
