Sheku Kanneh-Mason Cello Concert

Chan Shun Concert Hall
“Technically superb and eloquent in his expressivity, he held the capacity audience spellbound with an interpretation of exceptional authority.”
The Guardian

Sheku returns to the VRS for the fourth time, but on this occasion he’s performing solo. Hear him in a varied and exhilarating program of music written for solo cello in the fine acoustic setting of the Chan Shun Concert Hall at the Chan Centre. He will be joined by a group of young local cellists in a performance of Pablo Casals’ ‘Song of the Birds’ as a grand finale to the concert.
