Westbourne's Own Orchestra...
... since 1930
The Westbourne Orchestra is a society of around 40 keen musicians, amateurs and professionals alike, from the Bournemouth area.
We all love our society for the chance to play great music together, make lasting friendships, and thrill audiences at our concerts.
We also host our own national Concerto Competitions for under-21s and adults, to give upcoming, and outstanding musicians the chance to perform with a full orchestra in concert.
What WOS means to us...
“I have been in the Westbourne Orchestra for a number of years now and have always enjoyed it. We always have interesting music to form excellent concert programmes and give us all a challenge. The social aspect is great, too – quick friendships are made and we have good laughs in the pub after rehearsals!”

As a nonprofit charity, we cannot do what we do without the generosity of our supporters. Donations we receive are what help us to hire the music, venues and equipment we need to bring the very best repertoire and locations to our audiences. The good is is, there modern age means there are loads of ways you can support us!
