A NEWLY formed not for profit orchestra is looking for musical residents to join them for concerts and events. 

Westbury Park Orchestra is a friendly, non-auditioned orchestra with a repertoire of classical and modern pieces and an emphasis on having fun. Members should be aged 12 and above and will ideally be of a good standard (at least grade 4 or 5), with string and brass players particularly welcome. 

The orchestra is conducted by Ben England, who has conducted ensembles such as Bristol Cabot Choir, Bristol Opera, New Harmony Ladies Choir and currently leads the Good Afternoon Choir, Bristol, the Nailsea Orchestra and the Bristol Gilbert and Sullivan Operatic Society. He has also worked as Director of Music at Colston’s Girls’ School, and is currently Vocal and Instrumental Strategy Manager for Bristol Plays Music, the music education hub for the City of Bristol which is based at the Colston Hall. 

The group meets at Westbury-on-Trym Methodist Church, Westbury Hill on Monday evenings between 8.00 and 9.30 pm (term-time only). Free taster sessions are available for newcomers, and all musicians are welcome to come and give the orchestra a try.
