Beethoven Septet in E flat, Op 20

Welcome back to Chineke!, St George’s resident orchestra, and Europe’s first professional orchestra comprising a majority of black and minority ethnic musicians, founded by the pioneering double bass player Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE.

This will be their fourth visit and this varied programme performed by the Chineke! Ensemble is set to be just as thrilling. It features two beautiful movements from a recently discovered Haydn Divertimento, a virtuoso arrangement of Strauss’s Till Eulenspiegel and a new work by Errollyn Wallen whose Concerto Grosso made such an impact here last November. Beethoven’s ever popular Septet, with its famous Minuet movement also used in his Piano Sonata in G completes the programme.

BBC 100 Women has announced its list of 100 inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2018.

With their help we will explore a variety of themes, including using anger to spark action, and uncovering women from the shadows of history.

Ranging in age from 15 to 94, and from more than 60 countries, the BBC 100 Women list includes leaders, trailblazers and everyday heroes.

Some will be telling us about what they will be putting in the Freedom Trash Can - our digital bin for all the items women feel hold them back.

Others will bring us stories of achievement against the odds - from the British woman who used her jail time to create an inspiring business, to the Afghan girl who was almost swapped for a boy.

The BBC 100 Women of 2018 are listed in alphabetical order below, with their age, profession, country of birth and biography.
