Autumn Season – November Update

Autumn Season – November Update

Wednesday 4th November, 2020

We are hugely disappointed to be sharing this inevitable news with you, but due to the national lockdown in place from Thursday 5 November we are having to cancel a number of our upcoming in person concerts.

We are hoping to move a number of the concerts featuring Sheffield based artists online to offer them as live streams – so keep an eye on our What’s On page and social media for news and updates.

In the meantime we have two scheduled live streamed concerts coming up in November:

Sound Junction I presents music from three special guests, visual artist and classical musician Professor Dale Perkins, Rick Nance; an acousmatic composer and Louise Rossiter, with her incredible project creating a sonic journey through Fritz Kahn’s pioneering infographics of the human body. This live stream is FREE and we hope you’ll be interested in exploring with us the sound-worlds these pioneering musicians create. 

Illuminate Women’s Music features Naomi Sullivan and Yshani Perinpanayagam performing new pieces from five emerging women composers; Angela Elizabeth Slater, Blair Boyd, Ray Gibson, Nina Danon and Lara Poe.

If you have bought a ticket for any of the in person concerts listed below you will receive an email about the refund process. 

  • Thursday 5 November – Jazz & Pop Recital – Alleyes & Friends
  • Thursday 12 November – Tangram
  • Saturday 14 November – Sound Junction Satellites: Workshops & Event
  • Saturday 21 November – Sound Junction I
  • Saturday 28 November – Sheffield Rep. Orchestra
