The Chineke! Foundation was established in 2015 to provide career opportunities to young Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) classical musicians in the UK and Europe. Chineke!’s motto is: ‘Championing change and celebrating diversity in classical music’. The organisation aims to be a catalyst for change, realising existing diversity targets within the industry by increasing the representation of BME musicians in British and European orchestras.
Elodie is starting a patch of work with the Chineke Orchestra and their tour will start at the Royal Festival Hall on Thursday June 13th and end at Bridgewater Hall on June 16th. She says that she is “especially looking forward to these concerts because for this project I’ve been promoted to co-principal!”
This is exciting news and just reward for her efforts.
