The exclamation mark behind its name is there for a reason: Chineke! Orchestra's motto is "change and diversity in classical music". Its members are top musicians from ethnic minority groups from Great Brittain and Europe.

The name Chineke! means "God, creator of all things good". And indeed, this orchestra brings together a lot of good things: big ideals, a drive to innovate, courage and top quality. Chineke! Orchestra was founded in 2015 by double-bass player Chi-chi Nwanoku and is part of the Chineke! Foundation supporting young mucians. The orchestra made its debut in the Royal Albert Hall during the BBC Proms in 2017 and has been successful eversince in the large venues thoughout England and beyond, including the Rotterdam Doelen and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
