Sheku Kanneh-Mason

Cello

Biography

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s mission is to make music accessible to all, whether performing for children in a school hall, at an underground club, or in the world’s leading concert venues. After winning the 2016 BBC Young Musician competition, his 2018 performance at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was watched by two billion people.

His 2023–24 season highlights include the Last Night of the Proms with the BBC Symphony and Marin Alsop, as well as performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, Orquesta nacional de España, National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, Oslo Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Gävle Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic on tour in Germany, Cincinnati Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Detroit Symphony, and San Francisco Symphony. He also returns to Antigua, where he has family connections, as an ambassador for the Antigua and Barbuda Youth Symphony Orchestra.

A Decca Classics recording artist, Kanneh-Mason’s 2022 album Song showcases his innately lyrical playing in a wide and varied range of arrangements and collaborations. Elgar, released in 2020, made him the first-ever cellist to reach the UK Top 10 list. Sheet music collections of his performance repertoire and his own arrangements and compositions are published by Faber.

A graduate of London’s Royal Academy of Music, where he studied with Hannah Roberts, Sheku Kanneh-Mason was appointed the first Menuhin Visiting Professor of Performance Mentoring there in 2022. An ambassador for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Future Talent, and Music Masters, he was appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2020 New Year’s Honours List. He plays a Matteo Goffriller cello from 1700, which is on indefinite loan to him.
