Celebrate the festive season in style with the vocalists and instrumentalists of Down for the Count  Orchestra, as they Swing Into Christmas!

This is a Christmas celebration like no other, as Down for the Count recreate the music of Nat ‘King’ Cole, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and many more in a luscious 28-piece orchestral setting evoking the sounds of the great Capitol Studios recordings. 

Expect to hear faithful recreations of the best music of the swing era including 'I’ve Got You Under My Skin', 'Let’s Face The Music and Dance' and ‘S Wonderful', alongside original arrangements of jazz and festive standards written by the Orchestra’s principal conductor Mike Paul-Smith, including 'Winter Wonderland' and 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting)'.
