Party in the City!
The opening night of the Bath International Festival is a truly unique experience: hundreds of local performers, choirs and community groups participate in over twenty venues across the city: a different act at every venue every 1/2 hour… all of it free… and a massive fireworks display to close the event at 10pm: great to be part of!
Cindy Stratton and Marius Frank 7pm Guildhall
Cindy and I will be performing some of Cindy’s amazing catalogue of self-penned material. I hear that there is a Steinway grand piano there… I’ll have to get off the bass guitar and onto that beast for at least one number (-:
Sassparella 8pm St Michaels Without (opposite Waitrose)
Cindy and I have been musical directors for this all-female community choir for around 10 months. They have come on leaps and bounds. Highlight of the set will be a James Bond themes medley, with one of the choir members (who is also an outstanding pianist) joining me for some four-handed big big orchestrations!
Z’Bella 9pm St Michaels Without
Our a capella group. Since we are sandwiched between two high octane gospel choirs, we have gone for some more reflective arrangements, debuting two of them: “Pretending to Care” by Todd Rundgren, and “This Marriage” by Taverner
Hope you can make it to one of the performances.
