What does a 17-year old cellist from Nottingham do when he is named the 2016 BBC Musician of the Year, is signed to an exclusive recording contract with Decca, and is given the use, on permanent loan, of a 400-year old Antonius and Hieronymus Amati cello? He makes his Canadian debut for the Vancouver Recital Society of course! Sheku comes from a family which includes six siblings – all musicians. He will be accompanied by his sister Isata.
