The Bath Festival Orchestra is the newly launched resident chamber orchestra of The Bath Festival. Originally formed in 1959 by Yehudi Menuhin, the orchestra was the musical heart of The Bath Festival. Their performance will highlight the talent and energy of young musicians in their innovative new ways they approach classical music. It seems fitting that this rejuvenated orchestra is to perform in the newly restored Bath Abbey. The abbey’s new, flexible and more comfortable seating will allow audiences to enjoy live music in this sacred space in a totally new way. Join to hear the energetic interpreters for the audiences of today and tomorrow.
