www.scarboroughconcertband.co.uk

Founded 1968: ‘Unlike other local bands, Scarborough Concert Band has a “military” configuration which includes woodwind and reed instruments, as well as brass and percussion. This gives the band a greater range of musical textures and colours, and enables us to tackle a remarkably wide range of pieces. The military band line-up stems from our historic roots in the Yorkshire Green Howards Regiment ... We are a non-selective band that is inclusive of all musicians in the area, no matter what their ability or previous experience is. We actively encourage young players to use our band as a half-way house between school music groups and the wider adult band world’.

‘Where else could you go to recline in a deck-chair, listen to world-class performances of music and look out across a sandy beach and to the sea? In the evening sit in the fabulous Grand Hall and, during the interval, meet members of the orchestra as you enjoy a drink and relax to the sound of the waves on the shore ... The Spa Orchestra was created in 1912 by Alick Maclean. This first ensemble of 35 professional musicians gave daily concerts in the Grand Hall and Suncourt. Concert programmes included music from the classical repertoire, Viennese waltzes, operettas, and popular songs of the day. This unique musical tradition has been continued by Musical Directors since Maclean including Max Jaffa between 1960 and 1986.‘
