Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year Big Band Style with swingin’ renditions of seasonal as well as all-time favourites from the “Golden Age of Swing”! Fashioned in the tradition of a classic “Christmas Special”, this festive revue will bring back memories and create new ones. It is a genuine time capsule that captures the warmth, joy and magic of the holiday season, sure to raise everyone’s spirits.
One of the most exciting bands around, the Toronto All-Star Big Band revives the spirit style and sound of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Armed with brilliant programming, choreography and engaging cultural nostalgia, this vibrant cast of awesome young talent has earned its position at the top of the list of presenters throughout Ontario and the USA. Theatrical engagements are far reaching, and recent gigs have included the Glenn Miller festival in Clarinda Iowa, the Villages and the Snowbird Extravaganza in Florida, the Muskoka Lakes Music Festival, Beaches International Jazz Festival, Art Park in Lewiston N.Y. and Toronto’s famed Palais Royale, Casa Loma and the Old Mill.
