Sheffield University Symphony Orchestra


The Sheffield University Symphony Orchestra is a welcoming and well-rehearsed symphony orchestra, comprised of students from various departments of the University of Sheffield. They rehearse on Monday nights and typically perform two concerts a year as a participant of the University of Sheffield Concert series.

The orchestra is closely affiliated with the University's Department of Music and is conducted by Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey.

As an example of their music programming, the orchestra's recent selection has comprised Dvorak's Symphony No. 8, Borne's Carmen: Fantasia by a flute soloist, and Elgar's Symphony No. 1 as well as a variety of new pieces composed by students. The orchestra also provides valuable performance opportunities for student soloists and conductors.

The active orchestra committee regularly puts on socials including trips to professional concerts, nights out and a weekend away.

Venues: Firth Hall, University of Sheffield
