Sheffield University Wind Orchestra Virtual Performance

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:

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.

SUWO Covid-19 Update

Monday 16 March 20

Horns - 2019

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, and new advice released from the government today, SUWO rehearsals have been put on hold for the time being. We want to ensure the safety of our members and since we have now been asked to avoid all non-essential contact, we believe it would only be sensible to cease rehearsing over the coming weeks.

We are working with the University of Sheffield Concerts team to monitor the ongoing situation, and are currently still hoping to bring our Semester 2 Concert to you on Saturday 9th May. Please keep an eye on this page and our social media channels for further updates.

*UPDATED 06-04-20
Alongside the Sheffield University Concerts Team, we have had to make the decision to cancel our Semester 2 Concert on Saturday 9th May. Any tickets that had been purchased will be refunded by the Sheffield University Concerts Team. Our summer tour to Utrecht, The Netherlands, as well as our Summer Gala and Pre-tour Concert, both due to take place in June, have now also been cancelled.*

Thank you for your ongoing support, and we look forward to getting back in the rehearsal room and making music in the Autumn! Stay safe!
