Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE on Colourful Radio


Chineke! Orchestra founder Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE appeared as a guest on Colourful Radio this month to talk about the mission of Chineke! and our upcoming concerts.

Listen back to the Colourful Radio show online to hear what she had to say on the ethos of Chineke!, the state of music education in the UK and diversity in the classical music industry.

When we walk through the door, we need to hold it open for the next person, whether we are soloists or orchestral members. It’s absolutely vital because it’s a communal, joint effort.
