Beethoven 250: Come & Play

Programme Information


BEETHOVEN Symphony No.5

***Update (9/3/2020)***
***We’re very sorry but this event is now sold out! We hope you'll join us for one of the concerts as part of our Beethoven 250 weekend (20-22 March)***

Come and play along with members of Ensemble 360 and one of Sheffield’s leading orchestras, Hallam Sinfonia! Spend an afternoon with these amazing, friendly musicians, playing through the first movement of Beethoven’s greatest symphony, No. 5 (da-da-da-DUUUUMMM).

We have parts for every standard, whether you scraped through Grade I or were a concert soloist at the age of 12. As long as you have some experience of playing with others as part of a large group, you are really welcome! (Please note that this includes under 16s but they must be accompanied by an adult.)

We have parts specially adapted by Andrew J. Smith (BBC Ten Pieces), so you can select the one you feel most comfortable playing. All you need is a working instrument and piles of enthusiasm - just come along and give it a go! 

The afternoon will culminate in an informal performance for an audience of friends and family. Participants and audience members will be invited to join in with the final movement of the symphony too! No need to book for the performance - just turn up for 5pm and pay what you feel able to on the day.

If you have any questions, please contact or call the office on 0114 281 4660
