Kanneh-Mason family to host takeover shows on Classic FM

Classical music family the Kanneh-Masons are joining Classic FM to host their own takeovers.

Launching this Sunday 26th February at 9pm, The Kanneh-Mason Family Takeover sees all nine members of the family make their debut radio series together.

Across six weeks, the Kanneh-Masons – mum Kadiatu, dad Stuart, Isata, Braimah, Sheku, Konya, Jeneba, Aminata and Mariatu – will share their favourite classical music and the pieces which have inspired them throughout their lives, both as a family and individually, and reveal their best-loved performances.

They will talk about everyday life as a nine-strong family and share personal stories as they figuratively throw open the doors of their home to welcome in Classic FM listeners.

The full series will also be available on Global Player for an extended period.

Philip Noyce, Classic FM’s Managing Editor, said: “We are beyond excited to welcome the world-renowned Kanneh-Mason family to Classic FM and thrilled that it’s also a radio first.

“The family shares our passion to make classical music accessible to all, and their exclusive six-part series will give us a unique insight into everyday life for one of the most successful musical families of our time. It’s great that everyone will present across the six weeks, as we discover more about this prodigious family by hearing the pieces that mean the most to them and which we hope will inspire others too.”
