Talent was there, however no stage presence!
They showed up on the stage as not clean cut, neither dressed for the occasion (evening at the concert hall).
They looked as they showed up to the rehearsal in the afternoon, after wearing the clothes for a day or two.
The UTD choir was pathetic, not synchronized.
All moved in diferent directions, causinhg a chaos on the stage, especially as a back up singers.
Despite of the black outfits for the evenig, they were inappropriate as a background group.
All should weare simple black pants and blouses - shirts. No dresses, no skirts, Unless all wore long dresses.
Naked legs were drawing attention. Not good. Some very fat!
The London-based Swingle Singers are legendary in the world of a cappella. Today, there are few music lovers who haven’t heard the name the Swingle Singers. Since the release of that ground-breaking debut album in 1963, this virtuosic seven-voice a cappella group (complete with their own vocal rhythm section) has performed on the world’s most famous stages, sustaining over four decades a level of international popularity beyond the dreams of its founder, American-born Ward Swingle.
The Swingle Singers’ performances have taken them from La Scala to Ronnie Scotts, from the soundtracks of Sex and the City to Glee. The group has won five Grammy Awards and released over 50 recordings. Their discography includes Ferris Wheels with unique arrangements of songs by Björk, Joni Mitchell, Annie Lennox, Sting and the Beach Boys. Their most recent release is Yule Songs, a winter EP.
