This concert will be one you don't want to miss. We will be celebrating Ella Fitzgerald's 100th birthday! You'll hear songs that had meaning to Ella and to her career such as the song that put her on the map, A Tisket, A Tasket. Ella made this piece her own by transforming this children's rhyming game into a jazz piece. She introduced A Tisket, A Tasket to the public with the Chick Webb Orchestra in 1938. It has since become a jazz standard.
The Glass City Swing Band is located in Westmoreland County Pennsylvania in the City of Jeannette, formally known as The Glass City. We are an 18-piece big band mainly performing music of the 1930's and 1940's. GCSB was formed in 2009 and became an incorporated 501(c)(3) in July of 2015. Our mission is to promote disabilities awareness through creative arts therapy programs and to preserve the history of the Swing Era through historical and educational concerts.
