Our annual Christmas concert, “Christmas Sweater Swing”, will be held on Friday, December 16, 2016. We will present many of your seasonal favourites with a swing twist. Our special guests will be The Harmony Singers of Etobicoke.
On Friday, March 31, 2017 the theme will be “What Happens in Vegas” – the best of the Rat Pack & modern highliners of the famous Vegas showrooms featuring the power of our own Etobicoke Swing Orchestra.
