About The Wantage Orchestra

Performing in and around Wantage for over 40 years

The Wantage Orchestra was founded in February 1977, to provide an opportunity for local musicians, including schoolchildren, to play together. We meet at King Alfred's Academy, West Site, on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm during school terms, and usually gives three concerts a year. New members are always very welcome.


Our 40th anniversary concert was held in June 2017, when the programme included a range of pieces, some repeating those of the very first concert!
