Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra

One of Sheffield's flagship amateur orchestras

The Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra is a friendly, enthusiastic and ambitious amateur orchestra based in the centre of Sheffield.  We give no fewer than five concerts a year, including the Rotary Club's annual 'Music in the Gardens' concert at the Botanical Gardens.

How to get involved

We rehearse 7.30pm – 9.45pm on Tuesday evenings at the Victoria Hall Methodist Church Hall (adjacent to The Crucible theatre) and draw players from all across Yorkshire & the Humber, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.  

We have an open door policy for string players grade 6+ but we would be particularly welcoming of Double Bass players!  We also have 2x vacancies for Percussionists (incl. tuned percussion).

We run a deps list so even if there isn't a seat advertised please do get in touch and say hello!
