The branch was formed in 1992 and has an average membership of 25 – 30 players covering a wide range of ages, instruments and experience.

We tackle a wide variety of music and hold an annual concert every May.  We also usually play at one of the Cathedral Late Night Shopping Sessions at Christmas.

Our Musical Director, Sarah, trained at the Royal College of Music specialising in Recorder and ‘Cello and then went on to do a PGCE and now teaches Class Music at Richard Lander School in Truro. She conducted the massed orchestra at the Annual SRP weekend held in Truro in 2014 and was subsequently invited to join the panel of visiting conductors for SRP. She conducted at the SuRF weekend in August in Cheltenham in 2016

 

The group meets at Carnon Downs Village Hall once a month on Saturday afternoons from 2:00-4:30 pm, with a tea break half way through.

Visitors are very welcome – the charge for an afternoon session is free for the first visit or  £6  for adults and  FREE for students in full time education.
