My Dear Friends,
May I say a very big thank you to you all for a successful 2018, not only for the concerts we gave but for all your commitment every Wednesday evening - it is very much appreciated. For me personally, I can say to you all how proud I am to be able to conduct such a fantastic band. Also, welcome to our new musicians who have joined us this year: Rebecca and Elen on Clarinet, Amy on Flute, Gemma and Bryan on Tenor, Matthew and Robert on Trombone and Robert on Euph.
The concerts we have given have been very much appreciated by our audiences, especially the Remembrance Service at The Spa to commemorate the end of the First World War.
Our last concert for 2018 will be on Sunday 16th December at St. Andrews Church and we will not meet again until WEDNESDAY 9th JANUARY 2019.
2018 was a very special year for The Scarborough Concert Band as we celebrated our 50th Anniversary, in which we gave 4 concerts for local Charities - The Rainbow Centre, Scarborough Survivors, Willows Lull and Independent Domestic Abuse Service - raising about £2000.
We already have concerts for 2019, these are:
Saturday February 16th- Westborough Church for Scarborough Area Music Centre
Saturday May 11th- St. Columba Church for Scarborough Parkinsons
Sunday 9th June- Peasholm Park

If you can, keep these dates available and if you can’t make any of these dates please let me know as soon as you can. Thankyou.
Finally, I would like to wish You and Your Families A Very Merry Christmas and A Peaceful, Healthy and Happy 2019.
Again, many thanks for your support.
Best wishes and see you all on the 9th January 2019,
