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 2021-2022 are
Autumn term: Thursday 9th September - Thursday 9th December
Spring term: Thursday 6th January - Thursday 7th April
Summer term: Thursday 28th April - Thursday 7th July

We currently have vacancies especially for string players but also possibly other instruments.
