Axe Vale Orchestra
Axe Vale Orchestra

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.
