Gigs and Events

Posted on by

We regularly perform at concerts and events by invitation.  Have a look at what’s coming up and some of our previous performances.

We also take part in demonstrations and street-singing to support campaigns and pertinent political causes.

Workshops

From time to time we organise all day workshops, open to anyone interested, whether members of the choir or not. The most recent of these was our Singing for Change Workshop at Weston Park Museum on  April 28th 2018. This workshop was designed to link in with the exhibitions organised by Sheffield Museums to celebrate the centenary of the Representation of the Peoples Act (1918). Changing Lives: 200 years of people and protest in Sheffield was at Weston Park Museum from 6 February to 1 July 2018 and Hope is Strong was at the Millennium Gallery from 17 February to 10 June 2018. The workshop attracted 60 people and we had a great day learning songs designed to raise the spirits and promote camaraderie.  Janet Wood, Sheffield Socialist Choirs Musical Director had put together a great programme of songs covering many aspects of protest featured in the exhibition. We finished the workshop by singing a few songs we had learned in the entrance hall to the Museum, including a rousing rendition  (complete with kazoos) of Let’s Hear it for the Trees, specially composed by Janet. Many of these songs will now feature in Sheffield Socialist Choirs repertoire
