Area of WorkBeyond Coleridge-Taylor: Uncovering hidden histories in British classical music through curatorial-activism
Uchenna’s explorations in creative practice investigate the lives and work of historical Black classical musicians in Britain from the perspective of a performer-curator-activist. Based in London, Uchenna is a freelance oboist, music educator and artistic director of Decus Ensemble – a flexible, mixed-instrumental group dedicated to performing lesser-known classical music works for chamber ensemble.
