RPO double basses thank the nation’s key workers

The RPO’s double bass players perform a beautiful rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow 🌈 in the latest video in the #RPOatHome series.

“It’s been a while since we have seen you all from the concert platform, so we’ve put together a little bass quartet from home. Adapted from pianist Keith Jarrett version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, this is a new arrangement by RPO Double Bassist, Ben Wolstenholme. It is inspired by all the rainbows popping up across the country, and is our thank you to the nation’s key workers.

Stay safe and well -  we hope you enjoy! And we hope to see you all again very soon.

Dave, Benn, Ben and Mark (the basses)”
