The Minehead Community Orchestra was founded in 2012 by David Pitts when it was known as The Alcombers Orchestra.

We rehearse at  The Old Hospital, Minehead fortnightly on Wednesday evenings in the Exmoor Room at 7pm for 7.20 start.  We are always looking for new members particularly strings, if you play to grade 4 standard, please get in touch here.

The Team

  • Conductor: Emily Feldberg
  • Leader: Lynda Edwards
  • Administrator: Anne Gibson
  • Honorary Treasurer: Bronwen Hodges
  • Committee Members:  Anne Holland, Liz Jay


We have formed small ensembles of no more than 6  but are still looking for a suitable outside space to play.


The string groups will play various pieces including:

  • Die Meistersinger – Wagner
  • Jupiter Symphony – Mozart
  • The Entertainer

The wind sextet will commence playing as soon as the government lifts the ban on amateur wind players performing in groups.

  • Subscriptions

The subscription per term is £20.

Interested in joining us?

Please contact us, we will be very pleased to hear from you.

We enjoy practising at our comfortable base in the Exmoor Room, The Old Hospital, Minehead.
