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.
Recently the Orchestra benefitted from masterclasses with Julian Bliss (Clarinet), Felix Kleiser (French Horn) and Braimah Kenneh-Mason (Violin).
- Masterclasses from our partners at the Bristol Ensemble and visiting professional musicians.
- Transforming Futures - our new commission especially composed for the UWE Bristol Orchestra and Singers.
- Performances at St. Georges, Trinity URC and outreach projects.
