Hitting the right notes

MUSICIANS from the Scarborough Area Music Centre have been busily practising over the past few weeks ahead of their annual Gala Concert at Spa Grand Hall on Saturday.

All of the centre’s bands and orchestras will be performing – from the beginners’ instrument group to the senior orchestras and jazz bands.

Jan Corrie, a centre spokeswoman, said “Our young musicians are really looking forward to the Gala Concert as it’s quite a spectacular event in our year.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to play in such a splendid venue, especially in the Christmas season, and we are pleased to be back at The Spa after its refurbishment this year.

“We have some amazing young musical talent in Scarborough and everyone is welcome to come to the concert to hear it for themselves.”

Tickets are available from Scarborough Music in Aberdeen Walk or on the door.
