Chineke! Orchestra has developed a strong reputation in the UK and across the world championing the work of Black & ethnically diverse musicians and composers both living and from the past whose work has been neglected. It is noted for the vivacity of its performances of the standard repertoire alongside rarities ripe for rediscovery.

Chineke!’s chamber ensemble performs Schubert’s beloved ‘Trout’ quintet, in which gossamer textures and infectious tunes conjure a summer idyll, alongside arrangements by the remarkable American composer Florence Price of two folksongs. Price drew on her African–American heritage to create music of rare depth and eloquence, spiking the great European classical tradition with the rhythms and sensibilities of spirituals and West African music.
