Comprised of principal players of the Chineke! Orchestra, the Chineke! Chamber Ensemble first performed in Manchester in 2017 and made its debut at Wigmore Hall in 2018, followed by appearances at Cheltenham and Ryedale festivals. It has since played at the Tonbridge Music Club, Wimbledon International Festival, Cambridge Music Festival, St George's Bristol and Snape Maltings.
The Chineke! Foundation was created by Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE in 2015 to provide outstanding career opportunities for established and up-and-coming Black and ethnically diverse classical musicians in the UK and Europe. Chineke!’s motto is: ‘Championing change and celebrating diversity in classical music’. The organisation aims to be a catalyst for change, realising existing diversity targets within the industry by increasing the representation of Black and ethnically diverse musicians in British and European orchestras.
