Title:Music in the Round, National Portfolio Funding success
Author:Music In The Round 
ID & Publication:20140711012 ~ 

Music in the Round is celebrating a further three years’ funding from Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation after the Arts Council acknowledged it as a ‘regionally significant organisation which has consistently worked above capacity to receive nationally recognised accolades,’ and cited its track record of working with high-quality established and emerging artists, an ideas-led approach and a broad definition of chamber music.

John Cowling, Chair of Music in the Round’s board, said: ’We are pleased and proud to have this clear endorsement of the way we are taking Music in the Round forward, and it’s a tremendous tribute to our talented and dedicated team and the outstanding quality of our resident musicians in Ensemble 360. It’s a great achievement to have achieved standstill when so many really wonderful artists and organisations are being cut.’

Angus Smith, Artistic Director said: ‘This news encourages us to continue our bold, innovative programming. From the beacon of our May Festival of Chamber Music in Sheffield to our tours to venues around the country where there is little or not provision of chamber music, we will continue to reach out to current and potential audiences with some of the world’s greatest music played with our trademark intensity and quality.’

Recent national triumphs for Music in the Round, the largest chamber music promoter in the country outside London, include a coveted Royal Philharmonic Society Award, a David Bedford Music Education Award, a ‘Composer of the Year’ award for children’s composer Paul Rissmann and honours for three of its resident musicians, most recently with bassoonist Amy Harman taking the Young Classical Artist prize awarded by the Young Concert Artist Trust in May.

The organisation, whose home base is the Crucible Studio theatre but which also promotes concerts in South Yorkshire and across the country, will now negotiate a three-year funding agreement with the Arts Council to deliver its adventurous concert programme, complemented by its ground-breaking work for children and young people.

Executive Director Deborah Chadbourn said: ‘This is a significant recognition of the work we have been developing over the recent past and the strong programme we have proposed for the future. We have not received an additional sum for our audience development plan, which is hardly surprising in the current climate, and this will present challenges in the years to come, but Music in the Round has 30 years of expertise, reputation and consummate professionalism behind it. We’ll respond to this decision with the determination and ambition to deliver another 30 years of outstanding, breath-takingly memorable music for audiences; watch this space.’
