“Exquisite and electrifying performances”

We are sorry to announce that due to Covid-19 and Government advice we have cancelled our next concert due on 22 March. We are not sure when we will be able to play together again. We will update the site further as soon as we are able. If you have applied for our conducting vacancy go to our New Conductor page for an update.

In the meantime, we send our love and best wishes out to everyone involved in the Orchestra and our audience members at this difficult time. It is a great loss not to be able to perform and we look forward to continuing to share our love of music by digital means for the foreseeable future!

So wrote the Bristol Post of Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra. A flourishing and thriving amateur ensemble with a well-established reputation for excellence, the Orchestra's players share one important thing – a passion for music. We perform at least three concerts annually, principally at St. George's Bristol where we regularly attract large audiences. We also perform music for different occasions, such as the launch of Rogue 1, a recent Star Wars movie, in December 2016. Rehearsals are held on a Tuesday evening.

In 2018, the Orchestra was delighted to appoint Michael Cobb as its principal conductor. We are pleased to congratulate Michael on his recent success in securing a conducting post with Opera Nationale de Lyon. We will greatly miss him when he leaves us later this year. Michael follows two previous conductors who moved to prestigious professional conducting positions after working with us. 

Look at our Opportunities page where you will find an on-line form to apply to join the Orchestra. We have opportunities for violas, double basses and violins presently. We are always interested in applications from string players in all sections.

The Orchestra is a registered charity. Our concerts present a great opportunity for sponsorship, donation and programme advertising. Find out how you can support us by going to our Support Us page. If you enjoy our concerts and want to leave feedback please write a review on our Contact page.

We have included a list of useful links on the Contact page to our concert listings and other useful sites.

The Orchestra acknowledges and thanks Bluetree Website Design, Microsoft, Google, Adobe , Buffer and Charity Digital for their generous support in the provision of website, software, marketing and technology support.
