West Mendip Orchestra

West Mendip Orchestra

West Mendip Orchestra (formerly Winscombe Orchestra) is a medium sized, friendly amateur orchestra. Our members come from a wide area including Bristol and Bridgwater, Wells and Weston-super-Mare.

We perform three or four concerts each year from the classical repertoire. Our concerts often feature well-known local soloists and also young talented musicians early in their careers, as well as music composed especially for us.

We rehearse from 7:45pm to 10pm on Fridays in term-time at The Lynch Chapel Hall in Winscombe.

The final rehearsals for our May concert are as follows:

  • Friday 6th May, 19:45 - Lynch Chapel
  • Thursday 12th May, 19:45 - St Mary's Church, Yatton
  • Afternoon rehearsal - Saturday 14th May 15:30-17:30 - Yatton

Players Wanted

The Orchestra is looking for string players, horns, a trumpet and a timpanist. We don't hold auditions, but members need to be able to play music in the classical orchestral repertoire. Please contact the secretary for more details.
