Czech A Capella Formation SKETY in London

Czech vocalist band SKETY will perform live at the London A Capella Festival as part of the promo programme prior to the performance of the festival's favourite stars The Swingle Singers (25 January) and they will also give a special performance at the Tripple Crown in Richmond (23 January). Skety are a unique formation made up of young professional Czech jazz singers and musicians who are each individually actively engaged in the contemporary jazz scene. Their performance at the A Capella Festival will take part at the foyer as part of their programme of free performances. Organised in partnership with London A Capella Festival and Bathroom Production s.r.o.

Skety are a vocalist band made up of young professional Czech jazz singers and musicians. There are many a capella ensembles, but Skety manage  something unique - they are made up of musicians who are actively and fully engaged in the contemporary scene. As each member also fronts their own projects including solo and  big band appearances, their singing together is a rich and much loved platform for all of them. Inspired both by contemporary world and Czech classical composers, they aim to bring the music they love to life.

This event is organised as part of the YEAR OF CZECH MUSIC 2014 programme

2014 is a remarkable year for Czech music, with over sixty prominent Czech composers, performers and musical organizations celebrating anniversaries – from Antonín Dvořák, Bedřich Smetana, Leoš Janáček, Bohuslav Martinů and Josef Suk to Rafael Kubelík and Milada Šubrtová to the Prague Symphony Orchestra and the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava.
Years ending with the number 4 have been traditionally recognised as years of music since 1924.

The Year of Czech Music 2014 programme has been initiated by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and Ministry for Regional Development with the objective to support projects promoting Czech music in the Czech Republic and abroad.
