Welcome to the Sheffield Chamber Orchestra website. We are a small, classical orchestra of about 40 musicians, comprising strings, woodwind, trumpets, horns and percussion, and are professionally led by our our conductor, George Kennaway, and leader, Ralph Dawson.
We perform three concerts per year, in a season which runs from Autumn to Spring (usually performing in November, March and May). We actively support the fledgling talent of local, young soloists as well as feature established, renowned performers. Every season we perform a wide range of classical music, from baroque to contemporary, including some new pieces written specially for the orchestra.

Beginning with Glinka’s overture Souvenir d’une Nuit d’Eté à Madrid, the programme also includes Tchaikovsky’s 2nd Symphony (the ‘Little Russian’) and Prokofiev’s ever-popular Peter and the Wolf with local Sheffield narrator Charlie Hardwick.
