Join Us

Thank you so much for inviting me to play with D.O. I really enjoyed today. Tim’s way with the orchestra is outstanding. Not only his own musicianship, but his marvellous way of allowing all our own musicianship to be celebrated. Clear authoritative instructions and a cheeky glance around to demand our attention.

We are actively looking to welcome more players at present, especially across the string sections.  If you are interested in joining, please email

Alternatively, come along to one of our Friday evening rehearsals in Totnes Methodist Church, Fore Street, Totnes TQ9 5RP from 7.30pm – 9.30pm (see Rehearsals).

The ethos of the orchestra is to enjoy playing together while exploring varied programmes of music, and to give pleasure to those who come to listen to us.


Young Musicians

The orchestra is keen to encourage young musicians and to offer them opportunities to join in at a level with which they feel comfortable and which will help them to develop their skills.

Young musicians are welcome to bring their instruments along to the Friday evening rehearsals, accompanied by a responsible adult. These take place during term time and are currently held in Totnes Methodist Church, Fore Street, Totnes TQ9 5RP from 7.30pm – 9.30pm(see Rehearsals).  There may be opportunities to perform with the orchestra.
