JPO with Eddie Clayton

It is with great “pride” that world-respected composer and African vocal/choir arrangement producer for the film,Lebo M, will participate with Eddie Clayton and the orchestraon opening night, 10 December.

Lebo M was specifically chosen by Hans Zimmer to collaborate on the unforgettable soundtrack to the 1994 animated global hit, which earned the two a Grammy Award, and his voice is appropriately the first to be heard as the show begins, a timeless salute to one of our nation’s great creative legends.

The enormous 84-piece orchestra will perform the original soundtrackwith seamless synchronicity throughout this screening, guaranteeing an astonishing audio-visual experience for the whole family, with sweeping, soaring audio and state-of-the-art pioneering filmmaking techniques displayed on the big screen, this is a must-experience event, a first of its kind in Africa.

The orchestra will not be in a traditional pit but on stage below the massive screen and will be made up entirely of South African musicians, keeping this historic show proudly local.

 The three evening shows begin at 7:30 pm whilst the matinee show on the 12th of December starts at 2 pm. The total duration of the show is 2 hours.
