Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with Chineke! 4 September 2022: BBC Proms on BBC Four 21

BBC Proms favourite Chineke! Orchestra is back on the Royal Albert Hall stage for a concert of music by Beethoven and celebrated American composer George Walker, whose centenary falls in 2022.

The ensemble is Europe’s first majority black and ethnically diverse orchestra, and has become a mainstay of the Proms since its 2017 debut.

The musicians are under the baton of German conductor Kevin John Edusei, and are joined by the recently formed Chineke! Voices to perform Beethoven’s epic Ninth Symphony. International soloists Nicole Cabell, Raehann Bryce-Davis, Zwakele Tshabalala and Ryan Speedo Green complete the line-up.
