Research Document - Orchestras Research

One of the many military bands that regularly appeared on the bandstand

By 1902, a typical promenade concert on the Pier consisted of classical music from the orchestra, conducted by Dr Abram, interspersed with ‘drawing room entertainments and sketches’ of a lighter nature.  This type of mixed entertainment concert was performed in the evenings and on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons; on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons there were music only concerts and a sacred concert on Sunday afternoons and evenings.
