Wexford's Maverick Sabre is among the artists taking part in the 2013 BBC Proms this summer.

The London-born, New Ross-raised rapper will join Fazer, Laura Mvula, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Jules Buckley for the inaugural Urban Classic Prom at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday August 10.

The BBC said: "In Urban Classic's experimental fusion of musical styles, high-octane orchestral showpieces by Mosolov and Henze rub shoulders with rap, R&B and soul."

"It's a culture clash," said conductor Buckley. "We're taking artists from different worlds and messing with their music, putting it in an orchestral context and exploring it in a new way."

The show will be broadcast on BBC Three, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1Xtra and online.
