The Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus was founded in 1935 as the resident choir for the new Philharmonic Society’s series of concerts in Sheffield City Hall. It was formed from two Sheffield choirs whose origins date back to the 1860s.

After the Second World War the Chorus became closely associated with Sir John Barbirolli and the Hallé Orchestra, with whom they sang in many other cities to great acclaim.
