West Dorset Music

Welcome to West Dorset Music

West Dorset Community Orchestra

The centrepiece of our music making is the Centre's community orchestra which was restarted in January 2012 after the original Centre was cut as part of the restructuring of Dorset Music Service. The orchestra meets weekly from 6.30 - 7.30 pm on Wednesdays during school term time.

The orchestra is conducted by Walter Brewster supported by string specialist, Jane Brewster.

New groups!

We are always hoping to start new groups but this is dependent on sufficient interest. We are particularly keen to hear from young players looking for their first ensemble experience. We are able to run string and wind groups with a view to players eventually joining the senior orchestra. Please get in touch if you would like to register your interest or would like someone to contact you with more information. Contact Form

Creating new musical opportunities for West Dorset

West Dorset Music aims to provide a range of opportunties for musicians of any age. We hope to be able to provide a structured approach for players who can now progress through our groups as well as enjoy tuition at the Centre.
