We need your help.

Decades ago it was realised that certain supporters of the orchestra were willing to augment the money they were already paying regularly to buy tickets for our concerts. These kind people agreed to commit themselves to assisting the orchestra by paying an extra few pounds each year and in return they would be acknowledged as Friends of the PSO.

The most valuable reward to our Friends is the awareness that they are helping the City of Plymouth to maintain its own symphony orchestra. The revenue on which the orchestra depends on the annual subscription paid by each player for the privilege and joy of playing, plus the contributions from the orchestra’s Friends. The Friends’ annual donations contribute significantly towards the expense of music hire, soloists’ fees and publicity. To have survived for 138 years in this way is a tribute to the devotion of a very few people.

Please print out and fill in the application form and post today. If you are already a Friend of the PSO, please will you tell your neighbours and colleagues about us? Ask them to join too.
