Be part of our future by becoming a Chineke! Friend

Through world-class concert performances and mentoring schemes, Chineke! will inspire and encourage young Black and minority ethnic musicians, provide role models for them, and celebrate diversity in classical music.  The Chineke! orchestra will come together at least twice a year to perform in festivals and winter seasons and to continue our work with young Black and minority ethnic musicians.
