The Axe Vale orchestra was founded in 2005 and brings together amateur and professional players from East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset. Our concerts include solo concerti, symphonies, orchestral suites and vocal pieces.
We give 3 concerts a year in East Devon and rehearse for 5 weeks before each one. We have performed with Axminster's twin town in Normandy, both in Normandy and in Devon, and members also play for local events.
We are always looking for new members so if you would to join us please be in contact.
Alternatively if you would like to be a friend of AVO we are always keen for volunteers to help on the day of the concert.
We would love to hear from you!
