West Mendip Orchestra

West Mendip Orchestra

West Mendip 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 at The Lynch Chapel Hall in Winscombe.
