About Us

Formed in 1976, the Orchestra now consists of over 60 playing members, and typically performs 7 concerts a year in Dorset.

The BAPS orchestra performs a wide range of music to the highest possible standard around Dorset. Our repertoire is planned by the committee, to appeal to both the audience and the players. 

The Orchestra, registered charity No. 271487, relies upon the support of its loyal audience. There are many ways you can become involved with the Bournemouth Philharmonic Society Orchestra and we are grateful for your support at any level.
