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.

Expected session dates for 2018-2019 are
Summer term: Thursday 12th April - Thursday 5th July
Autumn term: Thursday 6th September - Thursday 13th December
Spring term: Thursday 10th January - Thursday 11th April

We currently have vacancies for a french horn and for string players, especially violins.
