About Swing Into Christmas

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

This is a festive celebration like no other, as Down for the Count recreates the music of Nat ‘King’ Cole, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and many more in a luscious 28-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.

The show is full of joie de vivre and fantastic musicianship – and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face this Christmas. Grab your family and friends and join us as we Swing Into Christmas.

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!

The Down for the Count Orchestra, conducted by Mike Paul-Smith.
