For last year’s London Jazz Festival the Jazz Repertory Company presented its first-ever Swingin’ With Strings – a sell-out success that has inspired us to make a date with strings an annual affair. For this year’s offering, we feature an evening of Bossa Nova, performing music from Antonio Carlos Jobim with Frank Sinatra, Doris Day’s Latin for Lovers and music from Stan Getz’s wonderful 1962 album Focus featuring string arrangements by Eddie Sauter.

Iain Mackenzie returns in the role of Frank Sinatra and is joined by Brazilian guitarist/singer Gui Tavaras in the role of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Georgina Jackson sings Doris Day, Mark Crooks recreates Stan Getz and it’s all accompanied by a Big Band plus 22 sumptuous strings.

Duration: approx. 2 hours 30 mins (incl. interval)

Presented by The Jazz Repertory Company in association with the EFG London Jazz Festival

This event is not socially-distanced

As the government considers a move away from social distancing measures, such as the two-meter rule, it is our greatest hope that this event may be staged to a full-capacity audience.

Naturally, this is entirely conditional on the country’s ability to keep the virus under control. Therefore performances that have been sold to a full-capacity audience may be postponed or cancelled should distancing measures remain in place.

However, please be assured that all ticket purchases are fully protected and in the case of a rescheduled or cancelled event, customers are entitled to exchanges, credits, or refunds.
