West Bristol Orchestra

About Us

The West Bristol Orchestra is a small, friendly, amateur orchestra, ideal for anyone who is new to orchestral playing, wants to come back to it after time away, or just wants some additional, relaxed playing alongside other music-making.

The orchestra does not give concerts, so the stress of public performance is avoided, but we do sometimes record ourselves at the end of a season so that we have something to work towards.

The music is chosen by our Conductor, Chris Golding, to suit the players we have available.

Session dates for 2020-2021 are:
Thursday 17th September 2020 - Thursday 10th December 2020
Thursday 7th January 2021 - Thursday 25th March 2021
Thursday 15th April 2021 - Thursday 1st July 2021

The 2020-2021 AGM is scheduled for 24th September 2020.

The 2021-2022 AGM is scheduled for 16th September 2021 (tbc).

Rehearsals are currently suspended until the end of the lock-down.

We will resume rehearsals as soon as possible thereafter following Covid-secure social-distancing measures in line with government guidance.
As not all of our players are able to join us under such conditions, there may be opportunities to debutise during this Covid-19 period.
Please contact our conductor, Chris Golding (see Contacts page), if you are in interested.
