“Exquisite and electrifying performances”

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 Star Wars movie, in December 2016. Rehearsals are held on a Tuesday evening.

In 2021, the Orchestra was delighted to appoint Tim Harrison as its principal conductor after he had conducted us for a term as guest conductor. We look forward to many successful concerts under Tim's baton.

Look at our Opportunities page where you will find more information on joining and playing with the Orchestra, along with an on-line form to apply to join. We always welcome enquiries  from Grade 8 plus musicians who are experienced orchestral players and would love to hear from you if you are interested in coming along for a trial rehearsal.  While we are always interested in hearing from string players, we are currently actively recruiting for: -

  • violas;  
  • double basses; and
  • percussionists.

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.
