Building on previous vocal collaborations with the National Youth Chamber Choir and the London Chorus, NYJO is excited to be working with The Swingles for the first time. Both groups have a more than 50 year history, treading musical paths that encompass a wide variety of styles and colours with characteristic flexibility and élan.
As well as numbers from each group alone, the programme will include a variety of collaborations, from the Shakespearian-themed Journey’s End and Food of Love to the rhythmic excitement of both South American and Bulgarian folk music in Bučimiš and Dizzy Gillespie’s compositions A Night in Tunisia and Tin Tin Deo. Finally, Bach’s Little Organ Fugue as sung by the Swingles will be paired with a new take on a Bach prelude as played by NYJO.
