Check out our virtual performance of Music from The Incredibles by Michael Giacchino (arr. Bocook)!

When our concert was cancelled, we wanted to make a positive impact.The video was made in aid of the Sheffield Hospitals Charity who carry out great work within the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, improving the treatment of patients and supporting the NHS in Sheffield. To show your support, follow our justgiving link:

You can find out more information here: https://www.sheffieldhospitalscharity.org.uk/
Many of our members work in these hospitals as part of their degrees. The closest one is just a few hundred metres away from Firth Hall, where we rehearse and perform, so the effects really will be local.
