Welcome to the Somerset County Orchestra. We are a group of amateur musicians brought together by a love of playing and a passion for making classical music available to everyone.



This much loved overture from Rossini’s Barber of Seville is testament to the composer’s universal appeal. It was used in a Warner Bros cartoon (The Rabbit of Seville) which introduced opera to new generations of music lovers.
