Chi-chi Nwanoku Receives ABO Award

Two articles about this amazing honor.


Chineke! Founder, Artistic and Executive Director, Chi-chi Nwanoku MBE, has been awarded the 2017 ABO Award at the ABO annual conference, held this year at the Bournemouth International Centre.

The ABO Award, unique among the many prestigious awards and prizes in the music world because its recipient is nominated by the member orchestras of the ABO themselves, was presented to Chi-chi by Kathryn McDowell, ABO chair, for her work as a performer, educator, broadcaster and champion of diversity.

The Chineke! Foundation would like to congratulate Chi-chi on this wonderful achievement, and to thank the ABO for their recognition of the importance of Chineke!'s work.
