The Long Ashton Orchestra has played with us at our last two summer concerts, producing a rich, warm sound.
The orchestra, led by Joel Emond, originally started as a very small group of musicians in Clevedon under the direction of Winston Jackson. The spark was lit and the orchestra continued as a private group in Clevedon (briefly moving to Failand). Around ten years ago, the orchestra came to be based in Long Ashton and has stayed there ever since. It is conducted by Nicholas Bromilow.
