Music in the Round’s NPO funding from Arts Council England confirmed for 2018-22

Music in the Round has been successful in its application to Arts Council England for funding under their National Portfolio scheme to deliver an eclectic programme showcasing and touring the best in international chamber music as well as commissioning new work by contemporary composers.

John Cowling, Chair of Music in the Round’s board said:

“We are pleased and proud to have this vote of confidence in the way we are taking the largest promoter of chamber music outside London forward. It’s a tribute to the hard work and creativity of a very small team. At the same time we are aware of how many very able applications to the Arts Council have been unsuccessful and recognise that we have been challenged to deliver the very best in close-up accessible music not just to the funders, but our audience – present and future – and the wider community. In collaboration with partners and funders we look forward to meeting that challenge.”

 

 Angus Smith, Artistic Director said:

          “I’m delighted that we’ve been awarded National Portfolio funding to continue our bold, innovative programming of the best in chamber music, and to deliver education and participation activities for young and old. We will be defining chamber music in its broadest sense, creating new opportunities and partnerships to engage and inspire audiences and continuing to support a variety of venues to present musicians who are committed to the creative, informal and informative presentation of both well-known and new composers that is at the heart of Music in the Round’s ethos. We will be working hard with our partners to extend audiences, thereby taking a leading role in the development and presentation of chamber music in England.”

Forthcoming work includes a world premiere of Howard Skempton’s Man and Bat (from the poem by DH Lawrence) performed by Last Night of the Prom’s star, and Music in the Round Singer-in-Residence, Roderick Williams with resident chamber musicians Ensemble 360 (Thursday 20 July 2017) and Music in the Round’s full autumn 2017 Sheffield season.

The autumn season includes rare opportunities to see internationally renowned musicians performing up close in the extraordinary Crucible Studio such as the acclaimed pianist Imogen Cooper, star violinist Viktoria Mullova, Sheffield’s global music collective Rafiki Jazz, plus lunchtime and evening concerts by resident group Ensemble 360 and the world premiere of a new children’s concert by Paul Rissmann and Jason Chapman.

It will go on general sale on Saturday 22 July at Sheffield Theatres’ box office (0114 249 6000) and online at musicintheround.co.uk (priority booking for Friends from Saturday 15 July).
