Chichester Festival Theatre events: Chineke! Orchestra

Praised for the special electricity of its 2021 Proms performance, the Chineke! Orchestra – Europe’s first majority-Black and ethnically diverse orchestra – has taken the world by storm with its exhilarating energy and infectious enthusiasm. 

Founded in 2015 by the double bass player Chi‑chi Nwanoku CBE, Chineke! Orchestra will showcase works by Black and Indigenous musicians, from William Grant Still’s celebration of African-American experience to the blues energy of young US composer Valerie Coleman, alongside acclaimed pieces including Ravel and Ligeti.

Tickets from the CFT.
