An Improbable Centenary


The Life and Times of the Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra (1891-1990)

by Adrian Smith

Book: An Improbable Centenary

Far from being a narrow account of a local amateur orchestra – this book provides fascinating insights into musical tastes, social behaviour and community life in West Yorkshire over the last 100 years…

Absorbing and eminently readable…

Rarely is scholarly research combined with such wit and character…

Not only about an orchestra, it is a social history of hard-working industrial community…
