Sheffield Festival Orchestra

The Sheffield Festival Orchestra is Orchestra-in-Residence at St John’s Ranmoor where, as part of the extensive music programme, the group provides accompaniments for liturgies and concerts throughout the year as well as performing their own events. The orchestra, which varies in size depending on the requirements of the music, is drawn from advanced players from Sheffield’s many orchestras, the universities and independent instrumentalists as well as players from as far as London, the south of England and Scotland who travel a long distance to join us. 

This is an excellent opportunity for interested instrumentalists to play in an enterprising and exciting music programme - all  performed in the fabulous, grandiose yet intimate Victorian Gothic space with it's wonderful acoustic!

If you are interested in pursuing the outstanding playing opportunities with  the Sheffield Festival Orchestra  either on a regular basis, irregular basis or joining our list of deputies, please contact the Music Office at St John’s on 0114 360 5845 or for further details.
