Limerick Sings International Choral Festival

The Swingles

    University Concert Hall is delighted to welcome The Swingles to open the 2024 Limerick Sings International Choral Festival.

    The Swingles are one of the world’s most admired and loved vocal groups, and their stylish, classy shows take them to venues and festival stages across the world. They have earned 5 Grammy® Awards and are recipients of multiple prestigious international accolades. With generations of fans from their live performances and appearances on film and TV soundtracks, The Swingles’ are as relevant today as when Ward Swingle started the group nearly six decades ago.

    With their trademark vocal dexterity and innate musicality, The Swingles are reimagining jazz, classical, folk and pop from their ever-growing repertoire of arrangements, alongside a rich vein of new original material. They make creative use of close-mic amplification and unique live audio looping techniques to their stage performances – an immersive layering up of vocals to mesmerise the audience.

    The Swingles have appeared on film and TV soundtracks, including ‘The Two Popes’, ‘Sex and the City’, ‘Wedding Crashers’ and ‘Glee’. In 2017, they co-wrote and performed a song for the end credits of Alexander Payne’s film ‘Downsizing’, and in 2021 sang on Disney’s blockbuster, ‘Cruella’. Their prolific output of music videos has earned them millions of views and new audiences around the world.
