The Kanneh-Mason Family in Concert: Live from the Barbican

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm | 22 October 2020
Barbican Centre | £12.50 - £20

A heart-warming family affair as all seven siblings of ‘Britain’s most musical family’ (The Times) show their talents as both soloists and chamber musicians in works spanning Mozart to Eric Whitacre.

Not many musicians can claim a Royal appearance, award-winning albums and a BBC One documentary, but the Kanneh-Mason siblings are remarkable in so many ways. All gifted instrumentalists in their own rights, we relish the opportunity to hear them together live. Forming part of our live-streamed concert series, the Kanneh-Masons will appear in different combinations to take on a wide-ranging programme of their favourite music for piano and strings from the last 300 years, before coming together for a Fiddler on the Roof Medley, arranged by the siblings themselves.

As part of the stream, a conversation between the children and parents of this talented family will give us a chance to meet them and learn some of the insights behind Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason’s new book, House of Music: Raising the Kanneh-Masons.

Online booking for this event opens at 10:00 on 11 Sep 2020.

NB: To keep you safe we’re keeping to the 2m rule and have fewer available seats in our venues. We’re also cleaning more often. It’s essential for you to book your tickets before you come and to wear a mask. In line with government advice for seated venues, audience members can only sit together in groups of up to two households.

Ticket options

We’ll be welcoming a limited audience back into the Hall for these autumn concerts (subject to government guidelines).

Buying your ticket

Tickets for the live performance in the Hall are £20.

Tickets are available as single tickets or in groups of twos, threes and fours. In line with government advice for seated venues, audience members can only sit together in groups of up to two households.

If government guidance changes and we’re unable to have a live audience in the Hall, we’ll convert your ticket into a live broadcast ticket so you can watch the show at home – we’ll refund the price difference.

On the night

We’re working hard to make this a high quality experience for everyone, whether you’re with us live in the Hall or watching from home. Due to the technical requirements of streaming a live performance, if you’re in the Hall you might notice cameras and operators are visible, and staging, lighting and sound levels might change.

To give you some more information about the performance, we’ll send you a digital programme the day before the concert.

This performance is created for watching live from home. We can’t wait to share these new performances with you and bring the Barbican into your homes live for the first time.

We advise you to watch the performance live, but the stream will be available to watch back for 48 hours after the live broadcast.
