Seven brothers and sisters. All of them classically trained musicians. One was Young Musician of the Year and performed for the Royal Family. The eldest has released her first album, showcasing the works of Clara Schumann. These siblings don’t come from the rarefied environment of elite music schools, but from a state comprehensive in Nottingham. How did they do it?


In this Talk, their mother, Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason, opens up about what it takes to raise a musical family in a Britain divided by class and race. She will be in conversation with Dr David Lamper, Executive Head of Kent College.
