Please note, Jazz Train and Ebony's last rehearsal prior to Easter break will be on MONDAY 8th April.  Sessions will resume on Saturday 4th/Tuesday 7th May.  HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!


Well done to the EASY Band who triumphantly gained a Big Band First Place and Distinction at the Eskdale Festival of the Arts in Whitby on 9th March.  Also, Jazz Train and the EASY Band raised the roof at Snainton Village Hall, Filey Rotary One Voice Concert featuring a wide range of young and old musicians took place, a Strings concert with special guests Aurora Strings and the Boyes' Celebrity Concert featuring Atlantic Crossover all kept us very busy in March!


Our thanks go to Malcolm Appleby and The Scarborough Concert Band for a joint fundraising concert in February - this raised a fabulous £471.57 for our coffers, much needed as we are a Charity, and this was very much appreciated.


The Christmas Gala Concert took place in December at Queen Street Methodist Church and featured ALL of Music Centre's  ensembles - it was a fabulous evening and great for the younger ensembles to see the older members perform!


The EASY Band accompanied the Thornton Dale Lights Switch On on Saturday 2 December.


The Parents Committee is on the look-out for any new members following two resignations - PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!

We would also like to thank each and every member of the committee and parent volunteers too, who give their time in any way whatsoever: be it manning Tuck Shop, being roadies, taking Minutes, you know who you are! THANK YOU.


EASY Jazz featured in one of the FREE Fringe Events at Scarborough Jazz Festival at The Spa Sun Court in September.  Following on from a workshop earlier in the day, they were led this year by Tristan Banks and Jason Yarde.


We would all like to thank the Scarborough Freemasons of Leopold Lodge for their so very kind and generous donation.


Thanks to the NASUWT for their donation of £165.80 towards new MUSIC.


ALSO to help raise centre funds is our music book scheme - if you have any books you no longer need or perhaps have changed instrument and would like to pass them on to another young musician, please also leave at Tuck Shop. These will then be available at future concerts in exchange for a small donation.
