O Christmas Tree on Grolsch beer bottles

By

Dutch beer brand Grolsch jams out Christmas music with the Swingtop Philharmonic Orchestra, a troupe made up of some of the world’s leading musicians and sound engineers who play exclusively on instruments made from Grolsch Swingtop bottles.

A re-imagined version of the Christmas favourite by Ernst Ansch├╝tz has been arranged by composer Ross Power and is led by conductor Thomas Blunt, seven percussionists, woodwind players and a timpanist.

‘O Christmas Tree’ is the English translation of the German ‘O Tannebaum’.

  1. Shame that you are helping the promotion of SABMiller the company that ActionAid has identified as using tax avoidance to cheat a number of developing companies of corporate tax. And shame on the Dutch tax system for coluding in this.
