Event description
To open the 2019-20 International Concert Series, Millfield Music School welcome five-time Grammy Award-winning vocal group, The Swingles.

About this Event

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 Award-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”
