The 18-piece Beantown Swing Orchestra represents the future of big band swing music. Specializing in the performance of vintage Swing Era and Sinatra classics as well as popular and original songs custom arranged for big band, its mission is to bring big band music back into the mainstream for future generations to enjoy.
The orchestra features many young and notable vocalists, including American Idol finalists John Stevens, Siobhan Magnus, and Erika Van Pelt, semifinalist Jen Hirsh, and internationally-acclaimed jazz vocalist Laura Brunner.
Now in its ninth year, the Beantown Swing Orchestra is available for classy galas and weddings where it is important to get all ages onto the dance floor. It also performs concerts and offers school assemblies with the goal of engaging, entertaining, and educating audiences with this historically significant and most sophisticated form of American music ever created.
