Carl Craig to perform with the Chineke! Orchestra at The Royal Albert Hall

Detroit DJ and Grammy-nominated composer Carl Craig and the Chineke! Orchestra will headline next year’s Love Classical festival at the Royal Albert Hall, on the 28th of April next year.

Carl Craig will join forces with the Chineke! Orchestra to present his 2017 album, Versus, the orchestral adaptation of his music, as well as delving deeper into his repertoire. The native Detroit composer Carl Craig is famously known for his groundbreaking approach to electronic music. The Chineke! Orchestra is the Chineke! Foundation’s flagship ensemble and Europe’s first majority-BME orchestra.

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.”
