Our artistic director Marcus Farnsworth writes:
I’m sure that many of our readers will have enjoyed tuning into last night’s BBC Young Musician Final. All three finalists were outstanding and it made for a wonderful evening of music making. We are delighted that Nottinghamshire’s very own Sheku Kanneh-Mason was named BBC Young Musician 2016. If you missed it, you can watch his performance again via the BBC iPlayer.
I know you will all wish to join me in congratulating Sheku on his outstanding performance. It is rare to witness such direct and assured music making from someone so young and I am sure that he has a great career ahead of him. I look forward to hearing more from him in the years to come.
