A unique evening bringing together the winners of BBC Young Musician of the Year and BBC Cardiff Singer of the World. Sheku Kanneh-Mason is the epitome of musical charisma and was a smash at the Proms. Cardiff audiences were blown away by Catriona Morison and a major international operatic career beckons. The concert is rounded off by a medley of solos performed by the extraordinary Kanneh Mason family.
