Sheku Kanneh-Mason is already a star in Great Britain, but he’s waiting to be discovered on this side of the Atlantic. Winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year contest in January 2018, his debut album for Decca hit No. 18 on the official U.K. album chart and number one on the classical chart. The 19-year-old cellist is from an exceptional family of seven children who are all accomplished classical musician. Sheku’s older sister Isata, 21, will play piano for the recital.
In 2015 he appeared on Britain’s Got Talent with his siblings and he was a featured performer at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Like his musical heroes Mstislav Rostropovich and Bob Marley, Kanneh-Mason connects with audiences on a deep, soulful level.
