“They played with such ease and accuracy... Call it sibling harmony.” The Guardian (U.K.)

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason first gained renown as winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician competition (the first Black musician to take the title), soon launching to stardom after his performance at the 2018 wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. In 2020, he was appointed a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and became the first cellist in history to hit the U.K. Top 10 chart. Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason is the recipient of a 2021 Leonard Bernstein Award and a 2020 Opus Klassik award for best young artist. In this special recital, the sibling duo will astound with their tight-knit communication, exuberance and humility.
