Do you have an instrument stashed in the loft or the shed? Did you love playing at school or college? Get it out, dust it off, and join our concert orchestra for beginners and returners and rediscover the joy of playing! The ensemble will play a mixture of classical, popular, show and film music.

About the orchestra leader:
Conducted and led by Carolyn Tudor who is a specialist woodwind teacher and teaches in Taunton for Tone Woodwind Tuition.  With over 15 years of music teaching experience, Carolyn has a Music BA (Hons) and a PGCE from Southampton University, and 13 years working for Hampshire Music Service teaching individuals of all ages and abilities to a high standard as well as conducting and directing large Youth Concert Bands and Orchestras.


“Best in the West, as they would say. Carolyn is a great encourager and can correct mistakes without making you feel like a complete idiot!”

“Just wanted to say thank you for persuading me to come last night. I  had forgotten how much I enjoyed playing the oboe as part of a group.  Despite the 20 ish years since I last played I was impressed that some of the notes were in the right places (but the less said about the flats the better!). Its a lovely group and I didn’t feel at all embarrassed about any wrong notes.  I’ll be signing myself up for the next few.”

If you are a new member please book your ticket here or via our box office and then email Dion to tell her which instrument you play –
