St Andrew's Music Festival 2017

The annual festival at St Andrew's Psalter Lane Church showcases many genres of music. Started by local musician and composer Ray Kohn in 2014, all money from ticket sales goes to the Delphi Trust to support the festival.

Based in Sheffield, Yorkshire, the Delphi Trust has supported various music and education programmes. These have included national klezmer workshops, string orchestral weekends, chamber music programmes and the creation of CD teaching aids. ​In 2014 they launched the first St Andrew's Music festival, which was so successful that they have been perduaded to make it an annual event. Visit the Delphi Trust's website here.

The Delphi Trust is grateful to the following generous donors for their financial support:

D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust

Sheffield Town Trust

JG Graves Charitable Trust

Celebrate Big Lottery

Sheffield City Council Ward Pots Scheme

The Arts Council

 

Whilst Sheffield has an enviable record of promoting popular music, its classical music activities have been largely ignored. However, Sheffield boasts, among other groups and activities, five active amateur orchestras, eleven performing choirs and a strong university music department.

Many classical groups have come together to form a new charity, Classical Sheffield, whose website (see here) showcases everything that is going on in Sheffield's classical music scene.
