Members of the Argyle String Orchestra will soon be bidding farewell to their amazing conductor, Tim Robb. After 35 years, Tim says he feels it’s time to hand over his baton. 

The Argyle is Bath’s oldest orchestra, recently celebrating its centenary. At Tim’s final concert on 22nd June, the audience will enjoy Mozart Violin Concerto No.4 with special solo violinist Dennis Simons and Elgar’s beautiful Serenade for Strings. And it wouldn’t be a summer Argyle performance without pieces by Haydn,Tim’s favourite composer. 

Debbie Steel, a member of the Argyle committee said, “The orchestra is enormously grateful to Tim for his enthusiasm and commitment over so many years. Under his direction, we have gone from strength to strength. We were thrilled that Tim’s dedication was recognised last month when he was awarded the Mayor of Bath’s Citizen Award.”

Although Tim is a hard act to follow, from September the Argyle will be safe in the hands of a new conductor, Adam Laughton.

Tickets for Tim’s final concert, at St Luke’s Wellsway, can be bought on the door or in advance through https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/argyle-string-orchestra/t-krpmjzm. The concert starts at 7.30pm and refreshments will be available during the interval.
