Current Season

2023-24 season

SPC is looking forward to a full season of fantastic concerts in 2023-24. Details will be released soon. In the meantime, here is a taster of the season to come.

Saturday 28 October 2023 St Mark’s Church, Broomhill at 7.30pm

Durufle Requiem

Our season in Sheffield will start with a fantastic ‘up close and personal’ concert in the beautiful St Mark’s church in Broomhill. We will sing Durufle’s gorgeous Requiem, composed between 1941 and 1947 and incorporating themes from the Gregorian “Mass for the Dead”. In the first half you’ll hear Tavener’s hauntingly beautiful Syvati and Saint-Saens’ Priere, both featuring Simon Turner, celebrated cellist with the Hallé, and Saint-Saens’ Quam Dilecta.

The evening will also feature not one but two world premieres! Sheffield musician Robin Morton and Chorus accompanist Rachel Fright were both winners in the Stella Jockel Young Composer Competition in March 2023, and you will hear both versions of their Sheffield Nocturne in the first half.

April 2024 (date to be arranged) Come and Sing Haydn’s Creation

In April 2024 we are hoping to run a Come and Sing event,  a new venture for the Chorus and a super chance for folk to sing a popular choral work with South Yorkshire’s foremost mixed voice large choir.  We’re currently thinking of doing Haydn’s marvellous Creation – so watch this space!

Tickets for performers and audience will be available online.


Saturday 22 June 2024 Sheffield City Hall at 7pm

Mozart Requiem

The final concert of the season features a much-anticipated appearance of the Flanders Symphony Orchestra with their award-winning Music Director, Kristiina Poska.

Renowned for her choral conducting, she will direct a star-studded cast of soloists along with the combined forces of the Flanders Symphony Orchestra and Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus in a performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Including the mournful “Lacrimosa”, it is considered by many to be the composer’s greatest masterpiece.

Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni, famously written in just three hours the night before the outrageous comedy opera’s premiere, opens the concert, followed by Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony. Fondly referred to by the composer himself as “my little Symphony in F”, it is notable for its dramatic shifts in dynamics, feverish cross-rhythms and heavenly, almost hymn-like, episodes. This is a season finale not to be missed.

Kristiina Poska conductor

Yena Choi soprano

Kadi Jürgens mezzo

Denzil Delaere tenor

Christian Immler bass-baritone

Tickets available from the City Hall box office, online via this link, or on the door on the night.
