The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Schubert in Schools was a project led by Music in the Round, along with Singer-in-Residence Roderick Williams, pianist Christopher Glynn, and a bunch of schools and music hubs. Using 19th-century Austrian composer Franz Schubert's Winter Journey (Winterreise) song cycle as a starting point, it helped students and teachers find their voice and compose their own music. See the playlist below for videos documenting the process and to hear musicians' insights into the songs that make up Winter Journey.
