About

The Chineke! Orchestra return to disc on Signum in a new live orchestral recording from the Royal Festival Hall, London.

In this live concert recording under conductor Roderick Cox they perform Sibelius’s Second Symphony and Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto no.3, featuring multi-award-winning pianist Gerard Aimontche.

Drawn from exceptional musicians from across the continent, the orchestra is part of the Chineke! Foundation – a non-profit organisation that provides career opportunities to young Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) classical musicians in the UK and Europe. Their motto is ‘Championing Change and Celebrating Diversity in Classical Music’.

The Chineke! Orchestra is the brainchild of Chi-chi Nwanoku, OBE, FRAM, who says, “My aim is to create a space where BME musicians can walk on stage and know that they belong, in every sense of the word. If even one BME child feels that their colour is getting in the way of their musical ambitions, then I hope to inspire them, give them a platform, and show them that music, of whatever kind, is for all people.”
