It’s been a whirlwind year for Sheku Kanneh-Mason. In just a few months since he won BBC Young Musician in 2016, he’s performed at No. 10 Downing Street as part of Black History Month, won the Southbank Centre’s Breakthrough Award, performed Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ at the BAFTAs, and taken his cello to New York’s Carnegie Hall for a star-studded gala event directed by Danny Boyle.
On 9 November Sheku made his Nottingham Classics debut at the Royal Concert Hall, performing with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under the baton of its brilliant new Music Director, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla. The performance was recorded live by Decca to form part of his first album, Inspiration, a deeply personal collection of pieces which have inspired him in his career so far, and which features music ranging from Saint-Saëns’ ‘The Swan’ to Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman, No Cry’.
The album launches on Friday 26 January at the Royal Concert Hall and Sheku will be here from 2.30pm to play for us and to sign copies of his new CD. Book now to reserve your place and pre-order your CD, which will be ready to pick up from the Level 2 Foyer from 12pm on the big day.
