SWING INTO CHRISTMAS

Celebrate the festive season in style with the vocalists and instrumentalists of Down for the Count Concert Orchestra, as they Swing Into Christmas!

This is a Christmas celebration like no other, as Down for the Count recreate the music of Nat ‘King’ Cole, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and many more in a luscious 25-piece orchestral setting evoking the sounds of the great Capitol Studios recordings. 

Expect to hear faithful recreations of the best music of the swing era including I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Let’s Face The Music and Dance and ‘S Wonderful, alongside original arrangements of jazz and festive standards written by the Orchestra’s principal conductor Mike Paul-Smith and featured on our new album Swing Into Christmas, including Winter Wonderland and The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting).

Programme includes:

I’ve Got You Under My Skin
Let’s Face the Music and Dance
The Nearness of You
I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm
I’ll Be Home For Christmas
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

plus many more!
