Elizabeth Lees

Why Sheffield?
I had been coming to Sheffield to stay with family friends since I was 4 so the city was not new to me. I had also completed a fortnight of work experience at Music in the Round the year before so I had got to know the city and its music scene a little better. When I attended the open day for Masters courses, I felt really welcome, thought the course sounded really interesting and I could see myself there 6 months later studying the Music Management Masters.

What opportunities did you get involved with?
I opened up communications again with Music in the Round and occasionally helped out at concerts and events. I also volunteered in the office an afternoon a week for a few months until my workload drastically increased. Because of this, I was able to focus my dissertation on the benefits of the Learning & Participation programme of MitR.

How did the course help you with your career and ambitions?
The course gave me experience of dealing first-hand with arts organisations and an insight into how they run, I in particularly enjoyed the Marketing modules. It was really inspiring being taught by people who were able to share their own professional experiences with us and network. I was able to set up a week’s work experience at Manchester Camerata through one of the Trustees as she was a lecturer in one of my modules. It also increased my love for the city of Sheffield as I returned to work there a few months later and have been here since February 2017. It also gave me the chance to develop as a person and I am a lot more confident than when I started.

What are projects are doing at the moment?
I am currently working for the Diocese of Sheffield as a Development Worker. I have four churches in Sheffield where I do administration and development. I have done a lot of fundraising for various projects of all sizes. In January this year, I started a concert series at St Matthew’s Carver Street, called Sounds of the City. Each concert is 45-minutes worth of music from local musicians with coffee and pastries. We have held two concerts which have attracted attention on Radio 3 and the Yorkshire Post and had programmed until September, but have had to postpone due to Coronavirus.
