10 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module is based upon participation in and preparation for rehearsals and performances of the ensembles hosted by the Department of Music: the University of Sheffield Symphony Orchestra, Wind Orchestra and Chamber Choir. Through intensive preparation of challenging repertoire, students will develop their understanding of the demands and pleasures of large ensemble performance and their knowledge of the repertoire concerned, and be encouraged to reflect upon the roles and responsibilities of individual performers within the group. They will also be required to attend a professional ensemble concert or concerts within the university concert series.

Restrictions on availability: Available to all students participating in University Symphony Orchestra, Sheffield University Wind Orchestra, or Chamber Choir. Successful recruitment to module is by audition - ensemble auditions are held in week 1 of semester 1.
