‘We meet about 10 times per year - sometimes locally to hear our own members play, sometimes on “organ crawls” to explore some of the fine instruments in the local area, and at least once per year, much further afield to visit a cathedral or other large instrument. We also have local experts who can provide impartial advice to churches and clergy on all matters concerning organs and, in some cases, of their historic importance and worthiness of national recognition.‘

‘In 1875 a local teacher of music, Dr Samuel Weekes, brought together a group of musician friends and founded what was then known as an Orchestral Society: their first concert was presented in the graceful Tea Rooms of Plymouth’s old Royal Hotel. The renamed Plymouth Symphony Orchestra can claim to be one of the longest-established orchestras in the country, with an amazing record of continuity ... In addition to making appearances in Plymouth, an important feature of the orchestra’s work is to present concerts in other centres which professional symphony orchestras rarely, if ever, visit, such as Liskeard, Totnes, Dartington, Christow and Buckland Abbey. But the purpose of Samuel Weekes in founding the orchestra has remained central to all its activities: to bring friends together once a week to make music.’
