THE Swan Harmony Singers promise upbeat rhythms, jazz and a few hits when they take to the Darlington Hall stage for a spring concert on Sunday.

The choir’s program spans the years from the ’30s to the present, with classics such as Sentimental Reasons, a huge hit for Nat King Cole in the ’40s and recorded by a succession of stars, including his daughter Natalie and more recently Rod Stewart.

Also on the program are Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence and Coldplay’s 2008 hit Viva la Vida, described by one critic as having ‘an air of intelligence rare in today’s most popular pop songs’.

The concert will start at 2pm and be followed by afternoon tea.

Tickets, including afternoon tea, are $20 adults, $15 concession and free for children aged under 10.

To book, call 9295 6411 or 9299 7249.
