Experience an intimate chamber performance from members of Europe’s first majority Black and Ethnic Minority (BME) orchestra, comprised of exceptional musicians from across the continent.
Founded in 2015 by distinguished international double bassist Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE, CHINEKE!’s mission is to champion change and celebrate diversity in classical music.
CHINEKE! CHAMBER ENSEMBLE will be performing Strauss' Till Eulenspiegel einmal andres, Errollyn Wallen's NNENNA and Beethoven's Septet in E flat, Op 20.
The ensemble made its debut in 2017 in Manchester followed by concerts at Wigmore Hall, Cheltenham and Ryedale festivals in 2018. It has since performed at the Tonbridge Music Club, Wimbledon International Festival, Cambridge Music Festival, St George's Bristol, The Africa Center in New York, The Stables in Wavendon and Petworth Festival.
The ballot is now closed and successful entries will be contacted shortly. There are a limited number of seats available on the day - first come, first served.
This event is funded by Newham Council as part of their Black History Month programme. Chineke! will also be running a workshop earlier in the day at 3pm, which is free to attend. Find out more here.
