Europe’s first professional orchestra made up entirely of musicians of color, is set to make its debut performance September 13 in London.

The 60-piece Chineke! Orchestra, founded by British double bassist Chichi Nwanoku, has been established with the objective of making a conscious effort to redress the racial balance in classical music.

The ensemble will be led by Berlin-based African American Concertmaster and Jacobs School of Music alumna Tai Murray – and conducted by British conductor Wayne Marshall.
