Sheffield Chamber Music Festival at home

Sheffield Chamber

15 — 16 May 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

Music in the Round’s first-ever free online festival of music will feature specially curated performances, talks and family events on YouTube.

The plans follow the recent disappointing announcement that this year’s Sheffield Chamber Music Festival cannot go ahead as planned.

The replacement online schedule will feature solos and duos from many of the Ensemble 360 musicians, who would have been performing in the Studio over the 9-day Festival, and all staged within the current social distancing limitations.

Instead of appearing in the Studio, many of the city’s resident Ensemble 360 musicians are bringing people closer to the music by inviting them (virtually!) into their own homes.

They’ll perform a wide variety of classical music pieces, first introduced (just as they would on stage) with some informal chat about the music.

We are very excited about the line-up which covers everything from Mozart to Steve Reich and includes musicians such as Laurene Durantel, Naomi Atherton, Gemma Rosefield, Benjamin Nabarro, Tim Horton, Rob Harbron, Adrian Wilson, Gavin Bryars as well as Paul Lewis in conversation with BBC Radio 3’s Tom McKinney – also the Music in the Round programme Manager.
