Merry Christmas from Grolsch & the Swingtop Philharmonic Orchestra

1 Comment 15 December 2010

Grolsch & the Swingtop Philharmonic Orchestra present a ‘video Christmas card’ featuring a magical rendition of the classic carol ‘Oh, Christmas Tree’ played exclusively on instruments crafted from Grolsch Swingtop bottles.

A re-imagined version of the Christmas favourite by Ernst Anschütz has been arranged by composer Ross Power and is played by the specially assembled ‘Swingtop Philharmonic Orchestra’, a troupe made up of some of the world’s leading musicians and sound engineers.

Led by conductor Thomas Blunt, seven percussionists, woodwind players and a timpanist create a beautiful rendition of the song using sounds dreamed up through each element of the legendary bottle—glass, air, beer and the uniquely ‘Grolsch’ Swingtop.

Dozens of Swingtop bottles provide the score with tuneful pops, clicks, jingle bells, güiro sounds, wind tuned with Grolsch beer, orchestral timpani, bass drum and the sound of a mysterious festive Grolsch ‘glockenspiel’ that provides the story with a stunning seasonal twist and climax.
