Chineke! Chamber Ensemble
Next Occurrence : 16 Mar 2022
First a proactive foundation, then an orchestra, and now a movement, Chineke!, whose name translates as spirit of creation, has captivated the popular imagination, as evidenced by the wild response to every one of their to the BBC Proms.
Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE, of Nigerian-Irish heritage, is one of the UK’s finest exponents of the double bass. In 2014, the revelation of the Kinshasa orchestra from the Congo playing to a typical traditional classical music audience triggered the birth of this unique platform for majority Black and ethnically diverse classical musicians.
A Chineke! concert guarantees: excellence, unadulterated joy and the discovery of great new (or neglected old) music. Featuring Nonets and Quintets by Schubert (yes, The Trout), Rheinberger, Martinu and Prokofiev, alongside beautiful mini-orchestral pieces by the great British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and African-Americans William Grant Still and Valerie Coleman.
