Nottingham cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason invited to perform at Royal wedding by Meghan Markle
One of the brightest stars in classical music, teenage cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason has been announced as one of the musicians at the Wedding Service of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle next month.
The 19-year-old cellist, who became the first black victor of the prestigious BBC Young Musician award in 2016, is among a group of artists and choral groups named as performers at Prince Harry and Ms Markle's wedding on May 19.
Prince Harry has led the nation in honouring New Zealand and Australia's war dead at a poignant dawn service commemorating Anzac Day.
The couple will exchange their wedding vows in front of 600 family, friends and colleagues at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
St George's Chapel will also echo to the gospel sounds of the Kingdom Choir. "It will be a moment that we will always treasure, and we'd like to take the opportunity to wish the couple all the very best for their coming union", Gibson said. On Tuesday, Kanneh-Mason said he could not contain his excitement after receiving a call from "Ms. Markle".
The choir from St George's chapel, which dates back to 1348, an orchestra made up of musicians from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra, and the State Trumpeters will also be among those providing music for the event.
Prince Harry saw Sheku, 19, play at an event in London in June 2017 in support of the work of Antiguan charity the Halo Foundation.
The couple, set to Wednesday at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, England, on May 19, has chosen the music for their wedding service - and it includes a full orchestra.
