We are delighted to be presenting the annual concert dedicated to the memory of Brian and Margaret Roper; a concert that encourages future generations to develop their love of classical music.

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

Sheku Kanneh-Mason: ‘youth, verve and diversity challenge classical stereotypes in one joyful swoop’- GUARDIAN

Catriona Morison: ‘She sang with a silky, lightly smoky tone, easygoing dramatic flair and unflappable poise.’-  NEW YORK TIMES
