University Hall
£5 - £25

For the final performance of the season Nottingham Trent University are extremely excited to present Chineke! Chamber Ensemble, in their University Hall debut. The Ensemble comprises the principal players of the Chineke! Orchestra – Europe's first majority Black and ethnically diverse orchestra – and has performed extensively across the UK. The evening's programme features works by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Florence Price and Franz Schubert.

Joseph Bologne: String Quartet No.3 in G minor
Florence Price: Drink to me with thine own eyes and Shortnin' Bread from Five Folksongs in Counterpoint
Franz Schubert: Piano Quintet in A major 'Trout', D. 667

Comprised of principal players of the Chineke! Orchestra, the Chineke! Chamber Ensemble first performed in Manchester in 2017 and made its debut at Wigmore Hall in 2018, followed by appearances at Cheltenham and Ryedale festivals. It has since played at the Tonbridge Music Club, Wimbledon International Festival, Cambridge Music Festival, St George's Bristol and Snape Maltings.

The Chineke! Foundation was created by Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE in 2015 to provide outstanding career opportunities for established and up-and-coming Black and ethnically diverse classical musicians in the UK and Europe. Chineke!'s motto is: 'Championing change and celebrating diversity in classical music'. The organisation aims to be a catalyst for change, realising existing diversity targets within the industry by increasing the representation of Black and ethnically diverse musicians in British and European orchestras.
