Scarborough Spa Orchestra’s Music Quiz Returns

Scarborough Spa Orchestra

The popularity of quizzes never seems to diminish, whether they be on TV, in pubs or at parties. The same applies to The Scarborough Spa Orchestra’s annual Musical Quiz Night, which this year takes place on Thursday 16th July at 7.45pm.

The programme will reveal the composers of the concert items, but not the names of the pieces of music played by the Orchestra. The audience members work together in teams to name or guess the tunes which are all drawn from the Orchestra’s popular repertoire.

But that’s not all. The solution to the quiz is working out the anagram formed by taking the first letter of each piece of music and discovering a well-known phrase or saying. Then the final item in the concert will be something related to that phrase.

Competition is usually fierce with many a discussion taking place during the interval as wild guesses are considered. This year, to make things a bit more testing, all the first half pieces begin with consonants, so there are no vowels available to help form possible words. The vowels are only revealed in the second half.

The atmosphere is always friendly and relaxed, as it is at all Spa Orchestra performances, so the audience can arrive with a team already formed, or can simply join one on the night.

Tickets for the Musical Quiz Night are priced at £11, with children going free with a paying adult. Tickets are available from The Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via
