22oct8:00 pmThe Kanneh-Mason Familyin concert


Event Details

A heart-warming family affair as all seven siblings of ‘Britain’s most musical family’ (The Times) show their talents as both soloists and chamber musicians in works spanning Mozart to Eric Whitacre.

Not many musicians can claim a Royal appearance, award-winning albums and a BBC One documentary, but the Kanneh-Mason siblings are remarkable in so many ways. All gifted instrumentalists in their own rights, we relish the opportunity to hear them together live. Forming part of our live-streamed concert series, the Kanneh-Masons will appear in different combinations to take on a wide-ranging programme of their favourite music for piano and strings from the last 300 years, before coming together for a Fiddler on the Roof Medley, arranged by the siblings themselves.

As part of the stream, a conversation between the children and parents of this talented family will give us a chance to meet them and learn some of the insights behind Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason’s new book, House of Music: Raising the Kanneh-Masons.
