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!

SUWO Runs to Utrecht and Back!

Monday 10 February 20

Utrecht Fundraising - Running Map

This June, we are heading to Utrecht with USBB for our annual European tour which we are really excited about!

In order to get us there, we are doing a collective run of the distance from Sheffield to Utrecht and back to fundraise for the tour; 8 weeks, 17 runners and 1630km to tackle!

All of the money raised will go to support our trip to the Netherlands, which will be an excellent performing opportunity for our members. We would appreciate any and all donations which will allow us to do what we love best, performing!

SUWO Winter Concert: Departures!

Monday 09 December 19

We had an amazing time last weekend performing our Winter Concert: Departures, to a very full audience in Firth Hall! Thank you so much to all who came to support us.

We want to say a very big well done to Tom Coen, who was the Euphonium soloist in Harlequin, and to Dylan Leyland, who was our Student Conductor for this semester.

We've had a great time working towards this concert, and after a well earned break for Christmas, we look forward to getting back to rehearsals for our next concert on Saturday 9th May 2020! We look forward to seeing you then!
