About This Event

Since becoming an online sensation with his one-man, multi-tracked arrangements of songs such as ‘Don’t You Worry ’Bout a Thing’ and ‘Fascinating Rhythm’, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier has been forging a lightning-quick path through the musical world. Last year, aged 22, he picked up two Grammy Awards for his debut album In My Room.

Having made a guest appearance at the Quincy Jones Prom in 2016, Collier once again teams up with conductor Jules Buckley and his Metropole Orkest in a special collaboration for the Proms, featuring a host of new tracks and a smattering of special guests.
