For almost half a century, the Swingle Singers have pushed the boundaries of what the human voice can achieve. On Sunday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m., the international a cappella phenomenon will dazzle audience members at the Fredericton Playhouse with their incredible vocal agility.

Over the course of the past 50 years, the Swingle Singers have sung on the world’s most famous stages, from La Scala in Milan to Ronnie Scott’s in London. They have also been featured on the soundtracks of “Sex and the City” and “Glee,” won five Grammy awards and made more than 50 recordings.

The current lineup has never been stronger, with singers trained in a multiplicity of styles, from opera to jazz to pop, and featuring a dynamite vocal rhythm section. For the first time in many years, their repertoire also includes original songs. Recent releases from the Swingle Singers include “Ferris Wheels,” featuring unique versions of songs by Bjork, Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake, and the winter EP “Yule Songs.”

Five decades after the release of their pioneering, Grammy-winning debut album “Jazz Sebastien Bach” in 1963, the current Swingle Singers group includes seven young and versatile voices, capable of delivering folk ballads, funk jams and fugues with equal precision and passion.

This incarnation of the Swingle Singers keeps the classic sound of the group alive while fearlessly exploring new styles and approaches. This is a holiday concert not to be missed.

Tickets for Swingle Singers are available at a discounted group rate through Spinzo at http://ow.ly/r3u5x. Tickets can also be purchased through the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca
