Event Details

The Galena Center for the Arts presents the 18-piece big band group, Ladies Must Swing, 2pm Sunday, December 4th at Turner Hall, 115 S. Bench St., Galena IL.
This free Holiday concert carries on the spirit and tradition of the former Galena Festival for the Performing Arts, which has generously donated funds to the Galena Center for the Arts to support musical performances featuring regional artists.

Ladies Must Swing, the all-female 18-piece big band formed in Madison WI to share their love for 1940’s style big band swing music. LMS has received awards over the years including Madison Area Music Award’s Best Jazz Band in Madison as well as recognition for volunteer work with Badger Honor Flight and VFW posts while performing at a variety of venues from airport hangars to casinos! The band spreads its music across the state but has also traveled Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan – LMS was especially proud to be part of the re-grand opening of the Tuskegee Air Museum in Alabama!

Free will donations will be gratefully accepted, as the generosity of the public allows us to continue to provide exceptional music and art to the Tri-State area each year.

This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
