We are absolutely thrilled to be presenting our first ever free online festival of music this May!
Sheffield Chamber Music Festival at home (#SCMFhome) will feature more than a dozen specially curated performances, talks and family events, all launching on the Music in the Round YouTube channel over two days on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 May.
The plans follow our recent disappointing announcement that this year’s Sheffield Chamber Music Festival, our 36th annual festival, cannot go ahead as planned from 8 to 16 May in the Crucible Studio.

#SCMFhome is free to everyone, but Music in the Round will be running a fundraising campaign to enable us to support our freelance musicians and so we can return to live music-making when venue doors reopen. Donations can currently be made here.
