Axe Vale Orchestra
This chamber orchestra has been in existence for over ten years and is conducted by Arturo Serna. We put on three concerts a year in Axminster, Colyton and Seaton, as well as being available for other events. Our concerts are made up typically of an overture, a solo concerto and symphony, often from the 19th century. Recent solo pieces include Haydn's cello concerto in C, Vaughn Williams's' The Lark Ascending', Schumann's piano concerto as well as pieces for horn, for clarinet and for bassoon. Our most recent concert featured a local soprano singing songs by Berlioz. There are 5 rehearsals before each concert - please see our website.
