Prom 62: Chineke! Orchestra
Hailed by critics as ‘fresh’ and ‘brilliant’, the UK’s first BME orchestra Chineke! makes its Proms debut in a programme including works by Pulitzer Prize-winning George Walker and young British composer Hannah Kendall, whose The Spark Catchers takes inspiration from the urgent energy of Lemn Sissay’s poem of the same name.
Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician competition, also makes his Proms debut here as soloist in music by Dvořák and David Popper.
