The Swingles

When: Thu., Dec. 10, 8 p.m. 2015

Pentatonix might be the biggest name in a cappella right now, but The Swingles have history: They originally formed in 1962 in Paris as the Swingle Singers, a group of session vocalists who came together to record an album of Bach arrangements. Founding member Ward Swingle passed away in January, but the group—now a seven-piece that announces itself with kooky photo shoots—put out two releases since. Deep End revamps tracks by the likes of Debussy with a jazz edge, while Yule Songs Vol. II adds to the group’s sizeable holiday discography. —Maura Johnston
