The festive season hasn’t truly begun until you’ve spent an evening wrapped in the warm vocal magic of The Swingles. With folk and jazz-inspired a cappella originals alongside traditional carols and holiday favorites, the five-time Grammy winners evoke ice-bound worlds, blankets of snow and fireside sing-alongs.

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 them since they first made waves in the 1960s. At a time when a cappella music is more popular than ever, The Swingles are recognized as masters of their craft.

The Swingles have appeared on numerous film and TV soundtracks, including Sex and the City, Wedding Crashers, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee. In 2017, they co-wrote and performed a song for the end credits of Alexander Payne’s film Downsizing. Their prolific output of music videos has also earned them millions of views online and new audiences around the world.

The Swingles display their uncommon range and diversity through dozens of collaborations, performing to great acclaim around the world, including recent performances at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall with Michael Tilson Thomas, London’s Royal Festival Hall with Vladimir Jurowsky, and Milan’s La Scala with John Axelrod.
