Swingle Singers Q&A Demo in Library

Posted on 12/2/2019 5:10:48 PM

The Swingles The IUP Libraries and the Lively Arts are teaming up for their second noontime Q&A/Demo of the year by presenting the Swingles from noon to 1:00 p.m. next Tuesday, December 10, in the Commons of Stapleton Library, next to Java City. If you like the a cappella groups Pentatonix and Straight No Chaser,  you wont want to miss meeting and hearing the Swingles in advance of their 8:00 p.m. performance that evening in Gorell Recital Hall.

This is a great opportunity for anyone in the IUP community or region to meet the seven vocalists that make up this London-based and five-time Grammy award-winning group, ask them questions, and hear them give a mini-preview of their evening performance. Vouchers for reduced price tickets to the evening concert will be available for those in attendance.

The unmistakable sound of the Swingles has long been associated with Christmas, and audiences can look forward to music from five decades of holiday releases, including their 2015 album Yule Songs Vol. II. Alongside these seasonal favorites, the “Winter Tales” program includes select pieces from the group’s year-round touring repertoire.

At a time when a cappella music is more popular than ever, the Swingles are recognized as masters of their craft, so bring your lunch and join the Library and Lively Arts in a fun hour of music and talking with the members of this internationally renowned group.
