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.
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 £7 for adults and FREE for students in full time education.

From September 2017-August 2018, Sarah is having a year’s sabbatical from her Cornwall SRP conducting – We look forward to a variety of conductors over the year, some from within the branch, and some from further afield!
