Lighthouse Big Band: Swing into Spring
During the winter months of constant darkness and cold, looking forward to spring is the sparkle that keeps our souls warm. Spring brings along with it beautiful flower blossoms, melodious chirping birds, warm and pleasant sun, and a new beginning to everything. Spring also symbolizes rekindling the flames of love, as the warming weather symbolizes the warming of the heart. Are you ready to take off your heavy winter coats and get ready to sing along with the birds? If the answer is ‘yes’, join the Lighthouse Big Band as we “Swing into Spring,” with songs about Spring, celebrating nature, the warm weather, and love.
