Learning from Jeneba Kanneg-Mason

On Sunday 15 May we were delighted to welcome a visit from the outstanding young pianist Jeneba Kanneh-Mason, organised in collaboration with Chiltern Arts. 

Jeneba was a Keyboard Category Finalist in the BBC Young Musician Competition, 2018 and winner of the Murs du Son Prize at the 2014 Lagny-Sur-Marne International Piano Competition.

Jeneba spent the morning with some of our accomplished young pianists giving a masterclass and offering insights into both technique and interpretation. She then spent lunch with the Music Officers and Masterclass participants, giving valuable advice and sharing her musical experiences. In the afternoon, a number of our pupils had the opportunity to hear Jeneba perform in the Archer Recital Hall at her concert for the Chiltern Arts Festival. It was a wonderful experience with the performance concluding in a glittering rendition of Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No 2

The event was dedicated, appropriately, to the memory of long-time supporter of Wycombe Abbey Music, Mrs Catherine Archer.
