Remember the young man who magnificently played the cello and made you take notice at Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding in May 2018? I know I do. And, so did Pop so much so when he saw in the newspaper that he was to perform close by, Pop requested to attend the concert.
Last weekend, Sheku Kanneh-Mason (the 3rd of 7 gifted musical children) performed a moving Saint-Saëns’s First Cello Concerto with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. As an encore he played Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry.” We’re so grateful to have experienced the beauty of his talent. Not only that, it was equally beautiful experiencing his passion in his movements and bringing some much desired “color” and edge to the space with his white African print shirt and Bob Marley selection.
Thank you Sheku for being a gift by being YOU and bringing a beautiful and vibrant face to this musical world. Looking forward to seeing you again hopefully in the near future.
This was my first time seeing Sheku and the BSO perform in person. To you reading this, there’s so much to be explored and enjoyed that’s off the beaten path and so therapeutic. Be open. Seek and explore. Breathe. Exhale. Love!
