Music is proven to bring social and health benefits to the lives of people, and at BSO we believe everyone should be able to have the chance to create and perform music with others.

Run by our BSO Associate Musicians, members shape the music, explore new ways to create sound and enjoy the social element of music in a comfortable environment. Family Orchestra provides a common meeting ground, regardless of music taste, experience or ability. It promotes shared experiences across generations and provides a musical family for those living on their own.

The Aubergines – Exeter Community Family Orchestra

Run by BSO Associate Musician Hugh Nankivell with Emma Welton, The Aubergines have created a whole range of pieces and media, all of which are available to view.

If you are interested in joining the group and are in the Exeter/Devon area, do contact Evie Allsopp whose details are on the right-hand side of this page.

A dynamic and equal collective where each individual is allowed and encouraged to express themselves.
Martin, Exeter Family Orchestra Member
