America’s Swing era comes alive during Capital Philharmonic

The 1940s Big Band attraction “In the Mood” will join with the Capital Philharmonic of New Jersey to present a special gala performance of the ever popular repertoire of Swing Era favorites.

The performance is set for 7:30 p.m. April 22, at the War Memorial Patriots Theater, 1 Memorial Drive, Trenton, N.J.

Three years in the making with coordination between the Capital Philharmonic and the “In the Mood” production team, this performance marks the debut of the show with full symphony orchestra.

“In the Mood” takes a look at the life and times of America’s Swing Era, when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music, which ranged from mellow intimate ballads to up-tempo big band rhythms.

Swing music inspired America with a vision for the future filled with hope, promise and prosperity and helped sustain the nation’s morale during World War II.

“In the Mood” recreates the rhythmic, jazzy, brassy, sentimental, romantic and patriotic music of that time.

Tickets are $30 to $65, with group discounts available for 10 or more. For tickets and information, visit capitalphilharmonic.org or call 215-893-1999.
