Chineke! Orchestra June 2019 tour with Stewart Goodyear & Wayne Marshall
Chineke! Orchestra’s tour of England venues with compser/pianist Stewart Goodyear and conductor Wayne Marshall featured performances at Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank, Anvil Arts Centre in Basingstoke, Birmingham’s Town Hall Symphony Hall and Bridgewater Hall Manchester.
Repertoire included Grieg Peer Gynt Suite, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Ballade, Stewart Goodyear’s Callaloo Suite (a UK premiere for the work) and Dvorák Symphony No.7 in D minor.
Concert goers from each venue were warm and enthusiastic in their praise for the performances, with many noting how the diverse audience displayed a truer reflection of the multicultural make up of Birmingham and Manchester.
