GSO Christmas

Tom Parker plays the guitar at last year's A Swingin' Christmas concert on the North Central Texas College campus.

Tis the season for the Gainesville Swing Orchestra's Christmas show.

Ticket sales are underway for the 11th annual A Swingin' Christmas scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16 at North Central Texas College's First State Bank Center of the Performing Arts, 1525 W. California St.

Under the direction of Dave Alexander, the concert will feature six vocalists, including Kevin and Susan Beall singing “Baby, It's Cold Outside,” according to a news release issued Monday.

Santa Claus himself is even slated to join in on a song or two, the release states.

The GSO's holiday event will also showcase instrumental solos.

Tickets for the family-friendly event are $10 for adults and $5 for students. They can be purchased in advance from the Kevin and Susan Beall Insurance Agency, 326 W. California St. or at the door the day of the event, officials said.

Gainesville Swing Orchestra performers range from 18 to 76 years old. For more information about the GSO, visit their website at or call 940-736-1714.
