Music in the Round is the leading national promoter of chamber music, with a year-round programme of hundreds of events for people of all ages.
For nearly 40 years we have been bringing people and music closer together through our friendly and informative style of ‘in the round’ performances. We present concerts and the Sheffield Chamber Music Festival each year at our home venue, the Crucible Playhouse, as well as activity across the city and in partnership with venues around the country.
Music in the Round events are characterised by passion, excellence and proximity. We connect people to music by presenting music in intimate venues, with amazing artists playing spine-tingling music with their heart and soul, often accompanied by lively spoken introductions.
Our resident group, Ensemble 360, comprises 11 of the finest chamber musicians in the country, and is at the heart of our activity. We also present world-class guest musicians and outstanding young artists at concerts, alongside free or low-cost participatory events led by high-quality workshop leaders and educators. Each year we reach around 25,000 people, from Goole to Portsmouth via Barnsley and Milton Keynes.
