Sing, Sing, Sing! - Supertonic returns for choral celebration of the Swing era!
Supertonic is excited to return to the stage for its first concert of 2023, Sing, Sing, Sing! - an unabashed full-throttle choral celebration of the Big Band era of music. The 56-strong choir, known for crisscrossing the full gambit of musical genres, will be joined by an extraordinary jazz ensemble of rhythm, sax and brass for a one night only show on Saturday 27 May.
Swing emerged in a hellish moment in world history, bookended by two World Wars and peaking in popularity during the Great Depression. It’s unsurprising that the escapism of this rambunctious, rhythmic and soulful style of music took the world by storm. Sing, Sing, Sing! will include music from some of the true superstars of the era: Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey and many others.
Concertgoers will get to experience the full spectrum of Swing, from sentimental ballads like Summertime, Autumn Leaves and Stardust, to American dancehall standards including Lady is a Tramp, It Don’t Mean a Thing, and of course In The Mood!
Join Supertonic, music director Isaac Stone, and musicians from the New Zealand School of Music for this show-stopping choral spectacular that’ll have you jitterbugging all the way home.
