At the Orpheum
The Vancouver Recital Society presents Sheku Kanneh-Mason, cello and Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano
Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s star was already rising when he made his sold-out Canadian debut on the VRS stage at the Vancouver Playhouse in 2017. Since then, Sheku’s star has gone into orbit and he’s now one of the hottest properties in the classical music world. In 2018, he performed at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and his debut recording for Decca Classics took the world by storm, reaching No. 1 on the classical chart and No. 18 on the official UK Album charts. We’re thrilled to welcome him back with his gifted sister Isata, who held the prestigious Elton John Scholarship for her undergraduate studies at The Royal Academy of Music, and who’s forging a splendid career of her own.
