- Program Description
Public television audiences can put on their “zoot suits” and wing-tip alligator shoes to catch the latest retro-dance craze with Swingin' at the Pops. Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Orchestra lead off this celebration of the Swing era from the 1940s to the present with special guest singer/songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway performing selections from her wide repertoire of toe-tapping pop and jazz tunes. They are joined by The Jivin' Lindy Hoppers, an award-winning jazz dance company based in London. Symphony Hall shimmies and shakes with the dancers' breathtaking performance of the Lindy Hop. The show also introduces Five O'Clock Shadow, an all-male a cappella group from Boston. In the spirit of the Big Band era, principal members of the Orchestra step into the spotlight throughout the evening to showcase their soloist talents and pay homage to Lionel Hampton, Benny Goodman, and other big band and swing legends from the past.
