A Quartet of musicians from the internationally renowned Chineke Orchestra visited Holyhead school on Wednesday 12th June, to deliver a classical music workshop for Year 8 and 9 students.

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.

Our students were both encouraged to seek a career as a professional musician, as well as the possibility of doing so, particularly as a classical musician, either as a soloist, or as part of an ensemble.
