THE Spa Orchestra will play music from the movies at their second firework concert of the summer tonight in Peasholm Park.

It will feature rousing marches from The Dambusters and Colonel Bogey, interspersed with quieter moments from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Love Story and Schindler’s List.

There will sections on James Bond and musical films including The Sound of Music, West Side Story and The Wizard of Oz.

The ensemble’s guest singer on the Peasholm bandstand will be Michelle Todd, who first sang with the Spa Orchestra in 2007 and has travelled from Canada every year since.

“The Peasholm Park concerts are always popular and the audience on Friday can look forward to a feast of some of the most well-known and iconic movie music ever written, says Stewart Ward, sales and marketing officer at the Spa.

“The evening will be a chance to get together with friends, pack a picnic and a bottle and enjoy a night of great music finished with a spectacular fireworks display.”
