Founded by double bassist Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE, Chineke! is the world’s first professional black and minority ethnic orchestra, drawing on talented players across Europe and championing the music of BME composers past and present alongside great works of the classical canon. For its Turner Sims debut, the orchestra includes music by Errollyn Wallen, described by The Observer as ‘a renaissance woman of contemporary British music’, and the Guadeloupian-French composer Joseph Boulogne. Boulogne was a spectacularly gifted violinist, fencer and composer of music of such greatness that he became known as the Black Mozart.
