We’re delighted to launch a new strand within our programme – Classics Uncovered – and to launch the strand we’re delighted to welcome acclaimed soprano Elizabeth Llewellyn for what promises to be an entertaining evening of sweet songs of devotion, barely-repressed longing, and mercurial tales of love and loss.
Our Sound Lab strand offers workshops and live events exploring coding and 3D sound-worlds, plus we welcome back Louise Rossiter who performed last season.
As December rolls around come and celebrate the riches of our varied winter traditions with Awake Arise; five of the English folk scene’s most inventive artists and the highlight of our Global Soundtracks strand.
The ever-popular Forged in Sheffield strand will showcase recent graduates and current students of the University’s Music Department offering jazz, folk and pop as well as chamber performances.
