Sheffield University Symphony Orchestra is a collaboration of the best musicians from across the University. We put on two major concerts every year in which we perform large orchestral works. We also give our members the opportunity to audition to be a soloist, conduct or compose for the orchestra.
Recent repertoire has included Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 (‘Pathetique’), Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 (‘Eroica’), Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No. 7 (‘Sinfonia Antarctica’), Britten’s Sinfonia Da Requiem, Walton’s Symphony No. 1, John Adams’s Symphonic Dances and Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2. Our concerts are always well received, creating a fantastic atmosphere for everyone involved.
