Hello, everyone! We are the BathTub Orchestra, and we are delighted to share with you our experience of playing at Burdall’s Yard on Saturday 11th June 2022. We are a mixed ability orchestra that plays everything from pop songs, jazz, blues, film soundtracks and classical favourites. We are based in Bath, and we started in October 2018 as a group of music lovers who wanted to have fun and learn together.
We played a set list of 10 songs that showcased our diversity and energy, after listening to the Afternoon Rock Choirs excellent performance! We kicked off with Cars by Gary Numan, followed by Living for the City by Stevie Wonder. Then we got everyone clapping along to Happy by Pharrell Williams, and grooving to Chameleon by Herbie Hancock.
We slowed things down with Teardrop by Massive Attack, and then rocked out with Rosanna by Toto. We showed our metal side with Titanium by David Guetta and Sia, and then went retro with Take on Me by A-ha. We ended with a bang with The Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga and Mission Impossible by Lalo Schifrin.
We had so much fun playing for you, and we hope you enjoyed listening to us. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm. We can’t wait to see you again at our next gig!
