Kanneh-Mason Prom

Thursday 14th July

What makes the Kanneh-Mason siblings so remarkable? Is it the fact that all seven of them seem equally obsessed with music? All play either piano, violin or cello or a combination. Or is it the fact that they are equally at home playing Bob Marley, Mozart or medleys from the musicals?


In 2016, cellist Sheku was the first-ever black musician to win the coveted BBC Young Musician, with pianist sisters Isata and Jeneba reaching the keyboard finals in 2014 and 2018 respectively. The family have also performed at the BAFTAs and in 2018 Sheku played at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

An evening of solo and duet performances will include Schubert’s Impromptu Op 142 no .3, Brahms’ Scherzo, Chopin’s Ballade no 2. Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody and Shostakovich’s Cello Sonata Op 40 4th Movement and culminating with a family finale of Fiddler on the Roof as featured in the BBC’s Christmas With the Kanneh – Masons.
