In a moving tribute to George Floyd, Breona Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and all victims of racial injustice, a quartet of musicians from Chineke! Orchestra perform Deep River, arranged by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.
Founded by musician Chi-chi Nwanoku, Chineke! Is the first professional orchestra in Europe to be made up of majority black and minority ethnic musicians. Now an Associate Orchestra of the Southbank Centre, their debut concert took place in our Queen Elizabeth Hall in 2015.
Chineke!’s socially distant quartet consists of Ronald Long Jr (violin), Natalia Senior-Brown (viola), Desmond Neysmith (cello) and Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE (double bass).

Sadly, for everyone’s safety, our venues are currently closed. But you can still get your Southbank Centre fix online. We will continue to share inspiring and thought-provoking arts stories through our website and social channels.
As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. We all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
