The Chineke! Orchestra announces another summer concert.


April 11, 2017
The Chineke! Foundation is pleased to announce that the Chineke! Orchestra will make its Snape Proms debut on 29 August under the baton of Kevin John Edusei, featuring soloists Sheku Kanneh-Mason, cello, and Jeanine De Bique, soprano.

The Orchestra's Snape debut includes works by African-American composer 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.
