About UWE Orchestra

The UWE Orchestra, conducted by Senior Lecturer in Classical and Jazz Music Enrichment, Steve Legge, plays a hugely varied repertoire. It benefits from visiting artists and great performance opportunities. We welcome players of all orchestral instruments at Grade 6 standard and above, with a strong sense of commitment to the rehearsal and concert diary.

Performances have included:

  • live music and film showing of the Wrong Trousers
  • Mini Planets workshop with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
  • performance at the Festival of Sound, Colston Hall
  • Bristol Cathedral and Clifton Cathedral concerts.

"...a great way of meeting other students and making friends. The pieces are challenging and the people are friendly so I would definitely encourage students at UWE to come along."
