Southbank Centre: Chineke! Junior Orchestra Performs at Queen Elizabeth Hall 3 PM Sunday 29 April 2018

Chineke! Juniors

Chineke! Juniors

Chineke! Junior Orchestra is the sister ensemble to Chineke! Orchestra.

They are a youth orchestra of BME (black and minority ethnic) players aged 11 – 18, with senior players acting as mentors, teachers and role models to the young musicians.

Many of the junior musicians already benefit from existing youth schemes, junior music colleges and specialist music schools across the UK.

Chineke! Junior Orchestra acts as a bridge between such schemes and higher education, giving its players experience, encouragement and confidence during their formative years, with the hope of increasing the numbers of BME candidates studying music at a high level.
