What a wonderful night we had at our Christmas Concert on Saturday 10th December 2022! We were thrilled to play at the cosy Larkhall URC Church in Bath, and we were so happy to see you all there. You were a fantastic audience and we really appreciate your generosity and cheer! We would also like to thank the Humbugs, a wonderful local group who performed with us.
We played a festive and varied set list, featuring some of our favourite tunes from different genres and eras. We started with a bang with the James Bond theme On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, followed by the catchy Stop the Cavalry. Then we slowed things down with the beautiful Adagio di Natale, a piece all arranged by our very own conductor, and the classic Driving Home for Christmas.
Next, we played The Lighthouse Keeper followed by Walking in the Air, the haunting melody from The Snowman. We then switched to a baroque style with Largo ‘La Pioggia’, a movement from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. We ended the first half with a serene rendition of Silent Night.
We rocked around the Christmas tree with a lively version of the song by Brenda Lee, and then we wrapped up the year with Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses. We also played two of our favourite Christmas songs: Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, and Santa Claus is Coming to Town by Bruce Springsteen. We had a lot of fun performing for you!
We hope you enjoyed our concert as much as we did. We are so grateful for your applause and donations. We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year! See you in 2023!Watch our concert on YouTube
