SCARBOROUGH Symphony Orchestra will be joined by flautist Kathy Seabrook in their Gala Summer Concert on Saturday, July 13.

Since moving to the Scarborough area in 2003 with her husband, clarinettist Graham Quilter, Kathy Seabrook has introduced thousands of very young children to the delights of instrumental music and singing through her popular Fun Music sessions, as well as managing an international performing career.

Kathy said: “Even when working on the West End and touring shows of Evita, Me and My Girl and Barnum we always enjoyed getting back to our home by the sea.”

Kathy said: “I look forward to performing my favourite concerto with an orchestra here in Scarborough that plays with such an impressive spirit of ensemble.I have listened to how well this orchestra performs under Shaun Mathew’s direction.

“ I have performed the work several times with London-based orchestras but this will be a special occasion for me to be joined by our son Adam who is studying trombone at my former conservatoire The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He will be playing the highlighted solo trombone part. ”

The concert begins at 7.15pm at Queen Street Methodist Central Hall. Tickets are available in advance from . There is a pre-concert talk at 6.30pm Children and students may attend the concert free of charge.
