Swingle Singers
Ward Swingle, founder

For half a century, the Swingle Singers have pushed the boundaries of what the human voice can achieve. Their vocal agility and blend, combined with captivating showmanship, have thrilled generations of audiences around the globe.

In 1963, American-born Ward Swingle assembled a group of Parisian session singers to sing some of Bach’s keyboard music. Five decades on from this pioneering, Grammy-winning debut album Jazz Sébastien Bach, today’s Swingle Singers are an international a cappella phenomenon. Called “never less than dazzling” by The Washington Post, these seven young and versatile voices deliver folk ballads, funk jams, and fugues with equal precision and passion.

“a contemporary classic, ever fresh, ever powerful, ever provocative…a running commentary of speech, song and a kind of scat-crooning, an assignment literally made to order for the Swingle Singers”
Chicago Tribune
