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.



We are absolutely delighted to be performing Classic FM’s most popular piece of music as voted by its listeners, Vaughan-Williams’ haunting Lark Ascending. And the soloist for this wonderful piece is our very own orchestra leader, Alex Ennis.
