Classical Sheffield is an arts council sponsored event, now in its second year, where amateur and professional groups perform in different venues throughout Sheffield over three days. This year it is from Friday 17th – Sunday 19th March.

The Halle Orchestra will perform in Sheffield that weekend and Sheffield University are celebrating the life of Pierre Boulez in a series of concerts. The event will culminate in a mass-choir performance from the many choral groups active in the city.

The Endcliffe Orchestra’s own contribution to the event is to perform a short concert in the Winter Gardens at 1pm, Sunday 19th March. The orchestra will perform the two winning entries of the Janet Altman Composing Competition and Matthew Leese’s now-recorded Happy Melancholy.
