About the Sheffield Chamber Music Festival: 

Concerts are presented in the unique surroundings of the Crucible Studio, the UK’s most extraordinary venue for chamber music. It’s both intimate and relaxed, a space where you sit so close to the performers you can feel their excitement, see their energy and hear the control in every note.

The resident musicians Ensemble 360, Singer-in-Residence Roderick Williams, and international guest artists perform a wide range of classical chamber music, from very well-known pieces to brand new works.
