Chineke! Junior Orchestra on Britain’s Got Talent

Chineke! Junior Orchestra on Britain’s Got Talent

Amazing to see the Chineke! Junior Orchestra perform on Britain’s Got Talent, on Saturday night.

The Chineke! Foundation exists to champion change and celebrate diversity in classical music. Launched in 2015 by Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE, 2018 Foundling Fellow.

Nwanoku says: ‘My aim is to create a space where BME musicians can walk on stage and know that they belong, in every sense of the word.’

‘If even one BME child feels that their colour is getting in the way of their musical ambitions, then I hope to inspire them, give them a platform, and show them that music, of whatever kind, is for all people.’

The Chineke! Juniors performed a chamber ensemble at the Museum in March 2019, when HRH The Duchess of Cambridge‘s patronage was announced.
