Sun 19th March 2017 Albert Hall Nottingham NG1 5AA

Nottingham Youth Orchestra's spring concert features the talented Nottingham born cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, performing Haydn's Cello Concerto No 1 in C.


On May 15th Sheku won BBC Young Musician 2016 with his performance of Shostacovich's Cello Concerto No 1.

“A rising star in the classical music world.” Daily Telegraph

“The hall crackled with the energy that the 17-year-old produced.” The Times

“He was electric. A sincere and moving performance.” Dobrinka Tabakova, Chair of Judges

The 17 year old musician described winning as "a wonderful feeling".

He added: "I'm so grateful for all the support from my family, the Junior Royal Academy of Music, my teacher Ben Davies and Chineke that have helped me on this extraordinary journey."


Also in the programme

Brahms - Johannesburg Overture
Sibelius - Karelia Suite
Borodin - Symphony No 2
