The 18-piece Beantown Swing Orchestra specializes in performing big band music from the Swing Era, one of the most popular and sophisticated forms of American music ever created. With most of its musicians in their teens and early twenties, the orchestra is a true representation of the young and energetic big bands of the 1930s. In helping to further its mission of perpetuating this great music and exposing it to younger generations, the orchestra offers music workshops and presentations to various local high schools, including Rockport, where it trains and recruits new players regularly. Featured in this concert will be vocalist Rhiannon Hurst and guitarist Perry Wilson, both current Rockport High School students.
