Sheku Kanneh-Mason to perform at the Royal Wedding

-Posted on 24.04.2018

Royal Academy of Music student and cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason will perform at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on 19 May at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

19-year-old Sheku Kanneh-Mason is one of the brightest young stars in classical music. He won BBC Young Musician 2016, made his BBC Proms debut the following year, and his debut album, ‘Inspiration’, entered the UK Top 20 charts earlier this year. Sheku combines his studies at the Academy with an increasingly busy international concert career. He is passionate about making classical music accessible to all and is Junior Ambassador for the music education charity London Music Masters.

Prince Harry saw Sheku play at an event in London last June supporting the work of Antiguan children's charities through the Halo Foundation.

Sheku says: ‘I’m so excited and honoured to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. I was bowled over when Ms Markle called me to ask if I would play during the ceremony, and of course I immediately said yes! What a privilege to be able to play the cello at such a wonderful event. I can’t wait!’

We look forward to seeing Sheku perform at the wedding.
