Join the Curator Consortium

“I’m very happy to be joining Music in the Round for their 2024 festival, particularly as so many members of Ensemble 360 are old friends of mine. One of the many joys afforded by the variety of instruments in Ensemble 360 is the almost limitless scope it gives for programming any number of chamber masterpieces.”  

Steven Isserlis CBE
Sheffield Chamber Music Festival Guest Curator, 2024

For the last two years, we have had wonderful Guest Festival Curators programming Sheffield Chamber Music Festival, which has led to hearing lots of new composers and pieces enjoyed by musicians and audiences alike.

Who can forget Kathy Stott and Tim Horton’s phenomenal duets earlier this year?In 2024 – our 40th anniversary year – we are honoured and excited to have the internationally-renowned cellist Steven Isserlis curating the Festival.

Presenting such ambitious Festivals is a significant cost each year, and we need your support to make our plans happen. A small group of dedicated Festival supporters are forming the Curator Consortium, by giving gifts of up to £1,000 to support us in this cost.

By joining, you will be part of a group comprising our most dedicated Festival supporters, for whom we will aim to make the 2024 Festival extra special.
