Title:Concerts find new home in Doncaster’s cultural living room
Author:Music In The Round 
ID & Publication:20131011035 ~ 

Sheffield-based chamber music organisation Music in the Round today announces that its regular concert series in Doncaster will move to Cast – Doncaster’s new £22m performance venue.

The final concert at the series’ current home, Priory Place Methodist Church, took place on Saturday 12 October, and concerts will begin at Cast from Saturday 8 February 2014, with the world premiere of Shadow Game, a specially commissioned piece of work for Cast, composed by Charlotte Bray, one of Britain’s most dynamic living composers. The piece will be performed by Music in the Round’s resident musicians, Ensemble 360 alongside Doncaster-based amateur orchestras Beechfield Youth Orchestra and Boyce Chamber Orchestra - making a total of over 70 performers on Cast’s main stage. The concert will also include Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture played by Beechfield Youth Orchestra, Elgar’s Serenade for Strings played by Boyce Chamber Orchestra.

Deborah Chadbourn, Executive Director of Music in the Round, comments:
‘Cast is a venue with a real 'wow' factor. After many happy years at Priory Place, the time seemed right to bring our work to a new venue, and hopefully to new audiences too. Together we're all looking forward to offering the people of Doncaster world-class music in a really sociable new venue.’

Kully Thiarai, Director of Cast, comments:
‘Music in the Round works with the UK’s leading classical musicians, as well as with diverse communities to create innovative and exciting work that sparks imaginations. Cast is aiming to be the beating heart of the arts in Doncaster, the town’s cultural living room – so we are thrilled to be hosting Shadow Game, as well as to be a new home for Music in the Round in Doncaster.’

Music in the Round’s South Yorkshire wide autumn series runs from 10 October – 9 December, and includes the World Premiere of a remarkably discovered new birdsong piece La Fauvette Passerinette (2 Nov)by French composer Messiaen, unearthed and completed by scholar and pianist Peter Hill. Other highlights include the first visit to the North of England for Romania’s Arcadia String Quartet, winners of the 2012 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition (30 November) and Elias String Quartet’s return to Sheffield to launch a series of six concerts featuring all of Beethoven’s String Quartets (15 November).

Cast – Doncaster’s new theatre – opened its doors on Friday 6 September, welcoming a total of over 6,000 people inside the town’s cultural living room for the first time. Cast is the flagship element of Doncaster’s new £300 million Civic and Cultural Quarter (CCQ). Operated by an independent trust, the building is jointly funded by Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council and Arts Council England.
