4. Spa Orchestra

Scarborough Spa

The Scarborough Spa Orchestra’s summer season is fast drawing to a close. Today sees one of the traditional end of season celebrations when all the members of the orchestra take centre stage to play a solo of their own choice, usually one that shows off their amazing talents to the best effect.

On Thursday September 7 there will be no Spa Orchestra concerts in the morning or the evening, so the gala concert will be held on September 6 evening. This will be the return of a popular feature of recent years, a musical quiz.

The first letters of the all the pieces of music played during the evening can be rearranged to reveal a well-known phrase or saying which has some relevance to the season as a whole. Audience members can play individually or in small teams. Because the programme has been carefully chosen to represent the Orchestra’s usual mix of all kinds of popular light music, anyone who doesn’t want to take part in the quiz will still have an enjoyable and entertaining concert to look forward to.
