Scarborough Spa Orchestra 2018 Season
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. 2012 was Scarborough Spa Orchestra's centenary year. Now in its 102nd year the current Orchestra has blended these time-honoured experiences with a range of innovations. 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. Also every Tuesday 1:30-3:00pm enjoy Teddy Bear's Picnic with The Scarborough Spa Orchestra for young children!
