A dynamic, award-winning ensemble with a passion for music
Sheffield University Wind Orchestra comprises of more than 60 skilled musicians who are passionate about performing the most exciting range of music. The orchestra gives two outstanding performances every year as part of the university’s concerts series along with a few external events such as the Weston Park May Fayre. The orchestra love to socialise after rehearsals and celebrate concert achievements, and the highlight of the year comes at the finale in June when the whole group goes on tour for five days in Europe. The last few years have seen the ensemble give stunning performances in churches, châteaux and gardens in France, The Netherlands and Germany to name but a few.
During the COVID-19 lockdown the Orchestra performed music from The Incredibles by Michael Giacchino (arr. Bocook). The orchestra, made up of 36 musicians, and their conductor, all recorded their individual parts at home during isolation. The resulting video below was made in aid of the Sheffield Hospitals Charity. It carries out great work within all of the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, by improving the treatment of patients and supporting the NHS in Sheffield.
