From time to time, the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra may have special concerts, or events, not part of our regular season.
These special performance opportunities may also be held by our SPO Women’s Choir or by the Odin String Quartet.
When these opportunities are available, we’ll list them right here. We hope that you’ll be able to attend and support these events, too.
This concert on March 1, 2019 will feature the ODIN String Quartet. Click here to see the full-sized poster.
