If you play an orchestral instrument at Grade 6 or above, we'd love to welcome you to the UWE Orchestra.
About UWE Bristol Orchestra
The UWE Bristol Orchestra is conducted by Senior Lecturer in Classical and Jazz Music Enrichment, Steve Legge. We welcome players of all orchestral instruments at Grade 6 standard and above, including UWE Bristol staff and students, alumni and community members aged 16+ with a strong commitment to the rehearsal and concert diary.
In 2021 the Orchestra benefitted from masterclasses with Julian Bliss (Clarinet), Felix Kleiser (French Horn) and Braimah Kenneh-Mason (Violin).
