We had a great time playing at St. Swithin’s on Saturday 19th March 2022! It was a great opportunity to showcase our diverse repertoire and share our love of music with the audience. We are the BathTub Orchestra, a friendly community orchestra in Bath that welcomes players of all abilities and backgrounds. We started in October 2018 and since then we have been exploring different genres and styles, from pop songs, jazz, blues, film soundtracks and classical favourites.
After listing to the Afternoon Rock Choir's great performance we kicked off our set with Our Mutual Friend, a catchy tune by The Divine Comedy that tells a story of love and betrayal. Next, we rocked out to Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears, a classic 80s anthem that still resonates today. Then we slowed down the tempo with Teardrop by Massive Attack, a haunting song that features the ethereal vocals of Elizabeth Fraser. We followed that with Naima, a beautiful jazz ballad by John Coltrane that showcases our saxophone section. After that, we got funky with Rosanna by Toto, a catchy song that features one of the most famous drum grooves in history.
Then we paid tribute to David Bowie with Where are we Now, a poignant song that reflects on his life and career. Next, we had some fun with Take On Me by A-ha, a pop hit that features an iconic synth riff and high notes. We continued with The Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga, a powerful song that celebrates living in the moment. Then we got everyone dancing with I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston, a disco classic that never fails to lift the spirits. We ended our concert with I am the Walrus by The Beatles, a psychedelic song that showcases our creativity and sense of humour.
We hope you enjoyed our concert as much as we did! We are always looking for new members and new songs to play, so if you are interested in joining us or have any suggestions, please get in touch.
