Harmony Works is all about partnership and collaboration. With the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, it will be a hub of creativity, generating more opportunities for organisations to work together to bring exciting musical experiences to more young people across the Region.

Harmony Works collaborates with organisations who share our passion for opening access to music education for all young people. Our Founding Partners, SMA and the HUB will relocate to Canada House allowing them to grow and expand their reach. BBE and MiTR, our NPOs will also be resident in the building. Other Collaborators will become part of the Harmony Works community, using the space for their activities. 

Sheffield Music Academy (SMA) is one of UK’s 12 Centres for Advanced Music Training. Through expert tuition, specialist classes and a tailor-made curriculum, SMA help passionate and talented young musicians to excel and expand their horizons. Support from the Department of Education’s Music and Dance Scheme provides means-tested bursaries, ensuring this community is open to all.

Sheffield Music Hub (SMH) believes that every child, regardless of background, deserves the very best music education. Led by Sheffield City Council, The Hub currently works in 175 schools and in partnership with a diverse collection of partners ranging from professional symphony orchestras, folk groups, DJ schools, brass bands, and even the iconic Leadmill night club, to ensure that the musical interests and needs of every young person are supported and developed. 

Music in the Round is the leading national promoter of chamber music. From Sheffield, they work with partner venues across the country, presenting a year-round programme of outstanding musicians and exceptional young artists alongside free or low-cost participatory activities, engaging around 25,000 people each year.

Brass Bands England promotes, represents, and supports brass bands across the country, to help them to excel in music-making, increase participation, and connect with communities.

We are very grateful to those who support the project either through grants and donations or through providing their vital knowledge and expertise.
