Bringing the 2024 Music Festival to a close are two incredible talents, Braimah Kanneh-Mason and Plínio Fernandes.

An exciting young guitar and violin duo, both musicians have been hailed for their talents. Plínio was named on Forbes Brazil’s Under 30 list, a Rising Star by Classic FM and more recently he received the Revelação Award at the 30th Annual Prêmio da Música Brasileira. Guitarist Plínio was born into a family of musicians in São Paulo, Brazil and his musical education led him to receiving a full scholarship to attend the International Campos do Jordao Winter Festival, the biggest festival in Latin America, where he gave recitals and performed in chamber concerts in around 35 cities throughout Brazil and Chile.

Braimah Kanneh-Mason is a dynamic and versatile young violinist, experienced on the international stage as a member of the Kanneh-Mason Piano Trio, Festival Academy Budapest Ensemble and Kaleidoscope Collective. Braimah is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music where he was a scholarship student with Mateja Marinkovic and Jack Liebeck, winning the Harold Craxton Prize, the John McAslan Prize and the Dame Ruth Railton Chamber Music Prize.
