Orchestra Status - we are currently unable to rehearse due to the Rule of Six, but we are keeping in touch and hope to recommence as soon as we are allowed!

Shaftesbury Orchestra, established some 30 years ago, is a group of amateur musicians who rehearse in term times on Monday nights at a local venue.

We end each term with a concert at St Peter's Church, Shaftesbury. Proceeds from our concerts go to local charities.

Our conductor is Arturo Serna, a Venezuelan/British musician who holds a dynamic career portfolio as conductor, cellist and teacher in the area of Dorset and Somerset. To read more about Arturo, visit his website.

We aim to steadily improve our standard, while at the same time enjoying ourselves!

We welcome enquiries from potential new players - please Contact Us. We also invite everybody to come to our concerts - details at Next Concert. You can also now Subscribe to our new Concert Email list.
