THE ROYAL WEDDING
I was away from home on May 19, 2018.
I missed watching the royal wedding in real time.
My personal tradition has been to get up early and watch every bit of it.
I’ve been catching up with the DVR’d programs.
Watch cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s amazing performance!
Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason becomes breakout star after royal wedding performance
England may have a new duke and duchess in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but in the process, classical music also got a new star.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a 19-year-old cellist from Nottingham, captivated the congregation and everyone watching the royal wedding, his music filling St. George’s Chapel. As for Sheku himself, he can be as quiet as a church mouse.
“To perform at anyone’s wedding is such an honor, but a wedding of that much significance is just so exciting,” he said.
Sheku has been playing since he was 6. His parents Stuart Mason and Kadie Kanneh say it was love at first sight.
“And as soon as he got a cello, that was it. We couldn’t get him off it,” Kadie said.
He has a nearly priceless Amati cello that’s more than 400 years old and is never out of his sight. Well, almost never.
“I wouldn’t take it out at night,” he said, laughing. “No, I leave it, I leave it in my room … It’s not that extreme.”
He’s studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London on a full scholarship, along with his older siblings. In fact, every one of Sheku’s six brothers and sisters have spent their life playing classical music.
