Chineke! is the world’s first professional black and minority ethnic symphony orchestra, drawing on talented players across Europe and championing the music of BME composers past and present alongside great works of the classical canon. Its Snape debut includes African-American George Walker and the black British composer Samuel Coleridge Taylor – best known for his choral cantata Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast. The outstanding rising star, BBC Young Musician of the Year Sheku Kanneh-Mason offers virtuoso rarities, Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique sings Handel and the evening concludes with one of the great orchestral showpieces, Rimsky- Korsakov’s riotously colourful Spanish fantasy.
