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.

‘Arguably one of the most important concerts that the Proms have
ever hosted’ GUARDIAN
