Ensemble 360 are the resident musicians at the May Festival in Music in the Round starting today through to 18 May 2013 at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
Highlights from this festival, an un unabashed celebration of British music, include a collaboration between Ensemble 360 and tenor John Mark Ainsley, a tribute to Benjamin Britten in his 100th anniversary year and a new commission by Charlie Piper at the Showroom Cinema. For all the programme details and booking information please visit Music in the Round’s website here.
Music in the Round has been nominated for the prestigious ‘Chamber Music and Song Award’ at this year’s Royal Philharmonic Society Awards.
Considered the ‘Oscars’ of the British classical music world, this is the second year running that Music in the Round has been nominated for the award.
Angus Smith, Artistic Director of Music in the Round comments:
“This nomination comes at a particularly exciting time for Music in the Round as we embark on a five year plan to extend our regional and national portfolio of events with emerging young chamber musicians and artists of international standing. The recognition of an RPS award would really cement our national reputation as a truly innovative promoter and presenter of chamber music, and also the ever more prominent place that chamber music has in the cultural landscape of our country.”
The final deliberation of the jurors will be announced at a dinner at the Dorchester Hotel on Tuesday 14 May 2012 when the RPS Music Awards will be presented.
