About Us

Since 2001, Torbay Symphony Orchestra has gained a reputation for its exciting performances of classical and contemporary works by a broad range of composers. As a progressive local symphony orchestra, we believe in engaging with the community and embracing the talents of our local aspiring artists. Our aim is to offer audiences and musicians the chance to experience a wide variety of orchestral music from all eras, for all ages

We are a full-sized symphony orchestra which regularly performs concerts to a wide range of audiences across South Devon. Musicians come from far and wide to play in the orchestra which is based in Totnes, a market town well known for its alternative culture. 

Under the baton of conductor Richard Gonski and led by violinist Chris Eastman, the TSO enjoys a reputation for embracing all kinds of music in our concerts, from the familiar and popular to acclaimed performances of contemporary repertoire and music specifically commissioned by the orchestra from living composers.
