Sheffield Chamber Music Festival

Sheffield Chamber Music Festival is one of the city's annual musical delights. It returns on 13–21 May 2022 for nine days dedicated to exploring the joys and delights of chamber music.

Chamber music is classical music for a small groups of musicians. It makes for intimate experiences that create a special energy and connection between audience and performers. Here in Sheffield, Music in the Round have been hosting world class chamber music since 1984. Together with their resident group Ensemble 360, each spring they host the Sheffield Chamber Music Festival to really shine a spotlight on this form of music in the city.

The festival makes music for people to enjoy, and also creates room for people to enjoy making music. Ensemble 360 are passionate about making what is sometimes thought of as highbrow music accessible to everyone. With over 20 events across across nine days, the festival includes family concerts, special performances marking sunrise and sunset, opportunities to sing with others, and lots more. Venues include the intimate Crucible Studio, longstanding community centre SADACCA, and the beautiful Samuel Worth Chapel at Sheffield General Cemetery.
