The Leadmill Presents…

A project that is focussed on developing and orchestrating the original music of a selection of Yorkshire based commercial music talent, alongside Sheffield Music Hub’s exceptional 50-Piece Senior Orchestra.

We’re absolutely ecstatic to be partnering with Arts Council England on this exciting and completely unique project that will merge various genres of music together to create a twist on contemporary classical music.

The incredible musicians that will be joining us for this project are:
August Charles
Nathaniel Short
Rumbi Tauro
April Ess & Jxk
Curtis Charles
+ members of the Sheffield Children in Care Council & Care Leavers Union, who will be continuing the development of their hugely successful Spoken Word anthology ‘The Can in Can’t.’

The experience is going to involve collaborating in workshops alongside Sheffield’s very own composer / arrange George Morton, who is the current Musical Director of the Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as  Sheffield Music Hub’s Senior Orchestra to develop, rehearse and then perform the compositions LIVE alongside the Orchestra in a concert hosted at The Leadmill and The Crucible. We’ll also see contributions from resident musicians from Music in the Round, the Sheffield based national promoters of chamber music.

Funded by Arts Council England and taking place from November 2021 through to March 2022. We’re so excited to be leading on this completely new venture that will help us to closely assist in the development of some outstanding talent that is currently based in Yorkshire, as well as being a fantastic opportunity for us to create links within the Classical Music scene in Sheffield.
