The Chineke! Orchestra announced another concert to take place this time in Birmingham with conductor Roderick Cox with solo violinist Tai Murray. Only a matter of time before they make their U.S. premiere.

May 4, 2017
The Chineke! Foundation is pleased to announce that the Chineke! Orchestra will perform at Symphony Hall in Birmingham on 16 September 2017 under the baton of Roderick Cox, and featuring soloist Tai Murray, violin.
Classics by Elgar and Mendelssohn plus a magical British rediscovery, as Chineke! Orchestra makes its Birmingham debut.

Everyone loves Nimrod, but there’s more to Elgar’s Enigma Variations than just an unforgettable musical portrait gallery of his Worcestershire friends. Mendelssohn’s popular Violin Concerto and the passionate, unfairly-neglected Ballade by Elgar’s friend Samuel Coleridge-Taylor complete a wonderfully warm-hearted concert.
