St George’s Bristol stands in solidarity with black artists and the wider black community at this time.

As an arts organisation we hope to learn from and listen to this community so we can contribute to the dismantling of racism. Our close artistic partnership with Chineke! Orchestra has given us opportunities to not only promote Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic musicians but learn about their experiences.

We support their recent statement on the murder of George Floyd and urge our audiences to read it and listen to their rendition of Deep River, arranged by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, below.
