Bristol Beacon Chamber Orchestra is for string players of around grade 5-7 standard. Although predominantly string based, the orchestra does pair up with the Bristol Beacon Concert Band to do classical symphonies.

The orchestra works on mainstream smaller scale works, predominantly classical, but will also occasionally perform film and musical theatre music. Members of the orchestra also get the opportunity to perform a movement of a concerto, which allows the soloist the unique opportunity of performing with the orchestra, and the ensemble learn how to accompany.

Ability: Grade 5-7

Ages: 12-18
