Plymouth U3A Music Appreciation Group

We meet on the second Friday of each month at 10.15 for a 10.30 start in the Wolseley Centre main Building at the top of Wolseley Close (Next to the Co-op Building) in a side room to the main hall.

We listen to music, usually on dvd and try to improve our knowledge and understanding of all kinds of music.

We look at opera, orchestral music, ballet, modern music and also the lives and careers of performers. 

We often watch interviews given by great artists with examples of their work and occasionally we have a live presentation.

We are a very friendly group, not experts by any means, just people who enjoy music.  New members are welcome.

Burt Bacharach His Life in Song.  A programme recorded in the Royal Festival Hall with Michael Grade talking to Bacharach about his life and his compositions with lots of well – known singers, singing his songs.  A truly delightful programme.


No meeting – It’s Good Friday.

Learn the Recorder

Group Leader:
Venue: Group Leader’s Home
Day: Alternate Tuesdays Time: 11:00

This is a friendly group of people who are learning to play in consort, and an ability to read music reasonably well and some knowledge of recorders is required, along with a commitment to practice regularly. You will need to provide your own recorder and music stand, and be prepared to buy sheet music sometimes. There is no other charge.
