Community Choir

The Forged in Sheffield Community Choir is a new opportunity for singers in the city to come together and make music. Led by Nick Cox, our Adult Participation Producer, this project invites you to share your passion for singing whilst improving your confidence when performing as part of a group. The choir's first session was held on December 17th 2016 and we invite anyone who is interested in future sessions to sign up - no previous experience of singing is necessary! Click here to sign up 

Staff Choir

Forged in Sheffield showcases a city of music - makers!  Our staff choir will make you feel good and introduce you to the world of choirs and singing. Led by our Adult Participation Producer Nick Cox, an experienced and energetic choir trainer, these weekly sessions will develop your singing technique, build your confidence, and offer you an opportunity to meet new people by focusing on singing together as a group. 

Designed for University of Sheffield staff with very little or no singing experience, singers of any ability are more than welcome to join. An ability to read music is not required but may be helpful.

Come join us for some light hearted good fun and an alternative way to spend part of a lunch hour.  

Sessions are held on Thursday lunchtimes, 13:00 - 14:00 in the University of Sheffield, Department of Music, Jessop Building, Ensemble Room 2 (S3 7RD).

Delivered in partnership with the University of Sheffield's Juice Programme

Changing Voices

As children progress through school, there is sometimes a drop in the number of boys choosing to sing, and many secondary school choirs are made up almost entirely of girls.  But the truth is that Boys DO sing! They just need the music they sing to be appropriate to their changing voices, and their changing expectations as they mature. 

University of Sheffield Concerts is delighted to be working in partnership with the Sheffield Music Hub, to be launching a brand new choir called Changing Voices to help boys navigate the sometimes difficult “middle years”, and to discover the power in their voices.  

At Changing Voices workshops, boys from Y5 to Y9 will meet new friends from across Sheffield, discover the joy of singing and playing together, and learn about the unique possibilities they have as young male singers.

  • Sunday 12th March 2017, 11.00am – 12.45pm at  The University of Sheffield, Firth Court, Western Bank, Sheffield, S10 2TN
