We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of our Masterworks Concert on Saturday 3rd March, due to extreme bad weather.
Hopefully we may be able to rearrange the concert at a later date or include some of the music we would have performed in a future concert. In the meantime please look out for our next two concerts:
(i) An exciting collaboration with Opera on Location in a semi-staged performance of Mozart’s ever popular opera ‘The Marriage of Figaro’, on Friday 27th April in the Victoria Hall, Norfolk Street, Sheffield, starting at 7:15 pm.
(ii) Our Summer Festival Concert in St Andrew’s Church Psalter Lane on Saturday 19th May 2018, featuring young Sheffield soloist Callum McLachlan in Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ piano concerto.
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.
Please browse this site for details of our upcoming concerts, as well as information on how to get in touch if you would like to become a member or a Friend of the orchestra.
