Cherish your orchestra!

The highlight of the week in Scarborough that I spent with my family in August was your wonderful Spa Orchestra.

We attended almost every concert, including the Teddy Bears concert with our little granddaughter, and enjoyed hearing music from a vanished age played with immaculate professionalism.

My own grandfather’s family orchestra played seaside seasons before the war including Bridlington in 1924, and it was wonderful to discover the musical tradition still alive and well in Scarborough.

I hope that the people of Scarborough realise how unique and precious their orchestra is, and that these musicians will receive the continuing support they deserve.
