Carl Craig with Chineke! / 28 April 2019
A creative visionary, world-class DJ and ambassador for his native Detroit, Grammy-nominated composer Carl Craig is renowned for his groundbreaking approach to electronic music. The concert in April will be his first collaboration with the Chineke! Orchestra, which was established in 2015 to provide opportunities for young Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) classical musicians in the UK and beyond.
As Europe’s first majority-BME orchestra, Chineke! perform standard orchestral repertoire along with the works of BME composers past and present.
Lucy Noble, Artistic Director at the Royal Albert Hall, said: “The line-up for our 2019 Love Classical festival is incredibly exciting, crossing genres while drawing together some of the freshest, most distinctive and original voices in classical music for an incredible week of shows."
“From Carl Craig and Chineke! to Jessica Gillam and CLARK, these concerts underline our commitment to going beyond the obvious – creating unforgettable events that astound, intoxicate and thrill, while bringing new and younger audiences to our historic venue."
