Sophiatown's spirit will make its way to Bryanston as part of the Sophiatown Jazz Encounter series, when Marcus Wyatt and Friends perform for 200 guests at a fundraising dinner hosted by St Michael's Church.
The event is in support of the Motswako Enterprise and Cultural Hub planned for Sophiatown. Wyatt, a Sophiatown denizen, was introduced to the trumpet at the age of 11. He went on to study classical music and to play with orchestras in Port Elizabeth, his home town. Wyatt’s fusion of classic 1950s sounds was a hit at last year’s Cape Town jazz festival.
