Hello Bath! We are the BathTub Orchestra, a friendly community orchestra that loves to play all kinds of music. We are excited to share with you our experience of performing our Christmas Concert on Wednesday 4th December 2019 at the Bath Citadel. It was a wonderful night full of festive tunes and cheerful vibes.
After listening to the Priordonnas we started off with a catchy song by The Divine Comedy called Our Mutual Friend, which set the mood for the rest of the concert. Then we switched gears to some classic Christmas songs, such as Santa Baby, Stop the Cavalry and On her Majesty’s Secret Service. We also played a beautiful version of We have all the Time in the World, which was originally sung by Louis Armstrong for the James Bond film of the same name.
Next, we showcased our classical skills with two pieces by the famous Italian composers Corelli and Vivaldi: Adagio di Natale and Largo La Pioggia. These were soothing and elegant pieces that contrasted nicely with the more upbeat songs. We then returned to the festive theme with Silent Night, Christmas Wrapping and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. We had a lot of fun with these songs and we hope you did too!
We ended our concert with a bang by playing Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl. This was a crowd favourite and a great way to wrap up our concert and celebrate the holiday season.
We want to thank you all for coming to our concert and supporting us. We had a blast playing for you and we hope you had a blast listening to us. We also want to thank the Priordonnas for joining us on stage, and Bath Citadel for hosting us and providing us with a lovely venue. We are very grateful for your help.
We hope to see you again soon at our next concert. Until then, stay tuned for more updates from us!
