About the Plymouth Classical Music Concert Diary
History and Aims
This website was first set up in October 2000 in frustration at the lack of a single place listing all classical music events in the Plymouth area.
The best information source was the printed Concert Diary published by Plymouth Music Accord, containing details of their members' concerts. With the permission and encouragement of Don King from the Accord to use their information, and with additional content gleaned from elsewhere, I set up the site which has been growing since then.
My aim is to encourage concert-going in the Plymouth area by ensuring that people know in advance about forthcoming events, and to provide useful background information and links relevant to music lovers. In addition I hope to support local music organisations and performers by publicising their events.
The site is deliberately kept simple and "graphics free" to concentrate upon providing the essential information.

As well as promoting events by its member organisations, the PMA does a lot of work to encourage children and young people to gain an interest in music, develop their skills, and possibly start on a music career. To learn more please visit theor website via the link below.
Liaison with the Accord led to my becoming its Honorary Secretary in 2002 and I set up and maintain the PMA Website.
I have built upon the experiences gained in developing this and other music-related sites by setting up minim website design which specialises in functional, easy-to-use and literate websites which are quick to download. If you are looking for a website please visit minim and contact me via the e-mail link for a discussion.
