Sheku Kanneh-Mason (cello)

In May 2016, Sheku won the BBC Young Musician competition, performing Shostakovich’s cello concerto No 1 with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at London’s Barbican Hall. Sheku began learning the cello aged six with Sarah Huson-Whyte, continuing his studies with Ben Davies at the junior department of the Royal Academy of Music. He began his undergraduate studies as a full-time student of the Royal Academy of Music in September 2017.

Sheku has performed widely throughout the UK in venues including London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, Barbican Hall, St John’s Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Cadogan Hall, and Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall. Sheku appeared as a soloist at the 2016 BBC Proms in the Park in Wales, and has performed Haydn’s concerto in C with Chineke! Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall.

A keen chamber musician, Sheku performs regularly as part of the Kanneh-Mason Piano Trio and String Quartet, and the Mizuta Trio. Sheku has received masterclass tuition from Guy Johnston, Robert Max, Alexander Baillie, Steven Doane, Rafael Wallfisch, Jo Cole, Melissa Phelps and Julian Lloyd-Webber.

Sheku has performed several times on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune show, and has featured on Front Row, Radio 4.
