ALBERT HALL, NOTTINGHAM
MARCH 19TH, 7.30PM
After gaining the title of BBC Young Musician of the Year 2016, Sheku Kanneh-Mason has become a name to watch out for taking the classical music world and beyond by storm. Armed with his cello he has performed at the BAFTAS and on Britain’s Got Talent, along with the rest of his musically talented family. It’s a pleasure to see a Nottingham lad go from strength to strength, and will be a treat to have him perform on home turf.
