Chineke! is a thrilling phenomenon. The first professional orchestra in Europe to be made up of primarily black and minority ethnic musicians, it made a smash debut at the 2017 Proms. With its aim of ‘championing change and celebrating diversity in classical music’ it offers brilliant and inclusive performances for the 21st century. Their programme includes the fabulous Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin as well as timeless songs from Porgy and Bess.
