International Concert Series: The Swingles
 Millfield’s Johnson Hall


For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today's London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the award-winning ensemble since they first made waves in the 1960s. At a time when a capella music is more popular than ever, The Swingles are recognised as masters of their craft.   The Swingles will present a musical retrospective in celebration of their late, great founder Ward Swingle. The five-time Grammy winning vocal group take a look back at Ward's formative influences and at the musical landscape as it has changed over the Swingles' extraordinary five-decade history. Moving through the singer-songwriters of the 1960s and 70s rIght up to current British favourites, the group brings the retro sound of the classic Swingle Singers alive as well as bringing a fresh approach on original songs from their newer releases. “Without question one of the best close harmony groups in the world... fantastic singers” – GARETH MALONE OBE.  “The Swingle Singers pitched those mysteriously lovely chords with laser-like precision... a triumph” – THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

–Tickets £16, booking essential. Email: music@millfieldschool.com
