    For the first time, you can relive the closing night of Colston Hall before our redevelopment began. Slip back inside the 1950s auditorium as it was in June 2018, when a specially commissioned audio-visual spectacle by Limbic Cinema with music by Joe Acheson of Hidden Orchestra, used our auditorium as a grand canvas to tell the story of Colston Hall through music.

    Chineke! Orchestra - A Force For Change

    Thursday 2 July 2020 at 18:30

    Duration: 1 hr

    St George’s resident orchestra Chineke! are blazing a trail in the classical music world. As Europe’s first majority Black and Minority Ethnic orchestra they have been leading the fight for greater diversity in the arts and changing perceptions about what the modern orchestra should be. With the lockdown decimating the arts sector and the Black Lives Matter campaign catching fire after the murder of George Floyd in the United States, their extraordinary work takes on even more significance.

    In this special focus, local MP Thangam Debbonaire, herself an ex-professional cellist, talks to Chineke!’s inspirational founder Chi-Chi Nwanoku about the Chineke! story, how the orchestra became such a powerful force for change and what their future work with St George’s in Bristol will look like.
