Spa Orchestra’s Teddy Bears’ Picnics to Return This Summer
12 Apr 2017
Scarborough Spa Orchestra’s ever popular Teddy Bears’ Picnic concerts will return to Scarborough Spa this Summer.
The concerts which will take place every Monday morning in July and August are aimed at introducing young children to music and musical activities.
Taking place outside in the scenic Sun Court area, the concerts feature lots of audience participation by allowing youngsters to be involved by singing, playing and dancing along with the Spa Orchestra.
The shows are devised and presented by Kathy Seabrook, the flautist with the Orchestra and is well known throughout the area and beyond for her outstanding work with young people.
Her bubbly enthusiasm soon gets the youngsters completely caught up in the music as they clap, sing and dance along to the familiar tunes.
The Teddy Bears’ Picnics are part of Scarborough Spa Orchestra’s 105th year which will feature over 120 concerts between Monday 5th June - Thursday 14th September 2017.
Paul Laidlaw, The Spa Orchestra’s Musical Director said: ‘As well as providing relaxing, easy-listening music for residents and visitors throughout the summer season, the legendary Scarborough Spa Orchestra is committed to encouraging young people to experience the joy of music’.
‘Kathy’s total commitment to making music accessible to the very young is inspirational and it’s no surprise that the Sun Court was packed out for every Teddy Bears’ Picnic last year. There’s no doubt that the crowds will flock in again this year, young and old, for this unique event!’
Don't forget Teddy for 90 minutes of musical fun!
