Join us for a special performance by members of Chineke! orchestra.

Chineke! provides career opportunities to young Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) classical musicians in the UK and Europe. The organization aims to be a catalyst for change, realizing existing diversity targets within the industry by increasing the representation of BME musicians in British and European orchestras. The Foundation’s flagship ensemble, the Chineke! Orchestra, comprises exceptional musicians from across the continent brought together multiple times per year. As Europe’s first majority-BME orchestra, the Chineke! Orchestra performs a mixture of standard orchestral repertoire along with the works of BME composers both past and present.

The performance will include:

Strauss Till Eulenspiegel einmal anders! (8 mins)

Wallen NNENNA (10 mins)

Beethoven Septet in E flat Op 20 (45 mins)

 


 

Doors open at 7pm

Performance at 7:30pm

Tickets: $15 plus booking fee
