Chineke! Junior Orchestra Summer Concert

Saturday 26th August

Enjoy an extraordinary evening of music as the Chineke! Junior Orchestra takes the stage for their highly anticipated summer concert, marking the culmination of their annual week-long residential course.


The Chineke! Junior Orchestra is the sister ensemble to the Chineke! Orchestra, and is made up of majority Black and ethnically diverse musicians aged 11 – 22. Both ensembles were founded simultaneously in 2015 with the aim of creating opportunities for emerging and established musicians of Black and ethnically diverse heritage.

This concert comes at the end of an intensive musical week spent together rehearsing and exploring the music that they will perform, as well as receiving individual tuition from members of the senior orchestra, who act as mentors, teachers and role models.

This concert is delivered as part of the Chineke! Junior Orchestra summer residential course, which is generously supported by Bank of America, Arts Council England, The Linbury Trust, and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust.
