SUWO Wants You 2019

We are approaching the start of the new academic year, which means it's time to start recruiting new members! If you play a wind, brass, or percussion instrument, enjoy performing music to a high standard and would like to make new friends, then we would love to have you come along and join us! This ensemble is ideal for players of a Grade 7+ standard or equivalent.

We will be at the SU Activities Fair at stall 227, on Thursday 26th September 2019 and would love to meet you, and we will be holding a Give It A Go rehearsal from 7-9.30pm that evening in Workroom 2, 38 Mappin Street, for anyone who would like to come along and join in with an informal SUWO rehearsal!

Auditions will take place on Monday 30th September 2019 from 5pm. If you're interested in booking an audition slot, get in touch via one of our social media platforms, or visit our stall at the Activities Fair!

Exciting Changes for SUWO!

Monday 08 October 18

Gareth 2019

Lots of New Members, a New Conductor, and a New Rehearsal Day!

We are really enjoying being back rehearsing again, and embracing lots of change this year! Congratulations to all our new members on getting in to the orchestra, it's lovely to have so many new faces!
We are also excited to introduce our new conductor, Gareth Widdowson, who has taken over leadership of the band. Gareth was a member of SUWO during his time as a student at Sheffield University and has now returned to be our conductor! We're looking forward to being a part of this new era for SUWO and to see what Gareth has in store for us!
And finally, we have a new rehearsal day. We now rehearse on Tuesday evenings in the University's concert hall, Firth Hall.

We have already started working towards our Semester 1 concert on Saturday 24th November 2018, we hope to see you there!
