A fully funded two-day programme for wind and horn musicians aged between 18-28

8 Feb 2022

Running on 2 and 3 April 2022, the Music in the Round Development Weekend in Sheffield is a fully funded two-day programme for wind and horn musicians aged between 18-28 who are interested in exploring ensemble group music making.

The programme will feature chamber music coaching, insights and guidance from members of Ensemble 360 as well as guest speakers, and social mixers with a chance to connect with peers and professionals in the classical music world.

Confirmed tutors include Matthew Hunt, Solo Clarinet with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, and Naomi Atherton, Principal Horn of Manchester Camerata and the Northern Chamber Orchestra.

One of the aims of this programme is for Music in the Round to build relationships with, offer opportunities to, and promote musicians in a way that is truly representative of our UK community. We recognise the many barriers faced by people from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds to working professionally in classical music in the UK and wish to be part of redressing this imbalance. We really want to hear from all musicians representative of the UK community.

The residential weekend will be fun, full of learning and will provide the perfect opportunity to make friends and build connections. You will work with and be inspired by world class musicians while having the chance to find out about the amazing work of Music in the Round, the leading promoter of chamber music in the UK. Music in the Round is focused on promoting great music making, developing talent and helping people to access music performed at the highest level.
