Scarborough Spa Orchestra’s 2017 Dates Revealed!
31 Jan 2017
The dates for Scarborough Spa Orchestra’s 2017 summer season have now been announced.
The legendary orchestra will continue the 105 year tradition from 5 June to 14 September, with nine concerts every week.
Once again the Morning concerts will bring a musical start to The Spa’s day from Sunday to Thursday, with the Evening Concerts taking place on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Of course, Thursday evenings will continue to be the centrepiece to the orchestra’s week with the ever-popular Gala Night. Special guest vocalists will be at the heart of these performances, creating a magical concert that always wows the crowd.
It’s good news for parents too as the Teddy Bears’ Picnics will replace the usual Monday morning concerts from 3 July to 28 August. Hosted by Kathy Seabrook, these performances introduce youngsters to the magic of music and how the instruments work. There’s plenty of audience participation in these fun-filled sessions.
The Sunday Morning Concerts with the successful ‘Pay What You Think’ scheme. As the name suggests, guests can pay what they think – with contributions going to assist the continued support of the Orchestra.
The Sunday Afternoon Concert will also continue in 2017. This replaced the Sunday Evening Concert last year, and proved to be a popular change. Day visitors will be able to enjoy two outstanding performances on the same day.
The Orchestra will make their annual visit to the picturesque Peasholm Park on Friday 25 August. Performing live on the band stand, the Orchestra will play across the lake where guests can relax on the hillside and enjoy this magical evening.
Tickets for ‘The Scarborough Spa 2017 Season’ go on sale Wednesday 1 March. Tickets will be available from Scarborough Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via www.scarboroughspa.co.uk
