Virtual SUWO: Music from the Incredibles

The brilliant Sheffield University Wind Orchestra (SUWO) have released a virtual orchestra video of their arrangement of music from Pixar film The Incredibles by Michael Giacchino.

The orchestra is made up of 36 musicians from the full ensemble plus the conductor, all of whom recorded their parts in their homes during isolation.

The video was made in aid of the Sheffield Hospitals Charity, which supports the NHS in its work within all of the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.

"Many of our members work in these hospitals as part of their degrees. The closest one is just a few hundred metres away from Firth Hall, where we rehearse and perform, so the effects really will be local."

Donate to the fundraiser for Sheffield Hospitals Charity.
