Artists with the SCG have an extensive repertoire of popular hits and vintage songs from the 1930s to the 1990s for almost any occasion to please the most discerning clients ... from the music of Nat King Cole, Sammy Cahn, Oscar Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Irving Berlin, Perez Prado, Henry Mancini, Hoagy Carmichael, Lorenz Hart, James Van Heusen, Johnny Burke, Burt Bacharach, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stevie Wonder, Johnny Mandel, Alberto Dominguez to Louis Prima and Antonio Carlos Jobim; greatest hits by artists such as Robbie Williams, Frank Sinatra, Linda Ronstadt, James Ingram, Diana Krall, Tom Jones, Diana Schuur, Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble, Bobby Darin, Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Barry Manilow, Van Morrison, George Michael, Vanessa Williams, Bobby McFerrin, Lou Bega, John Denver, Sammy Davis Jr., Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Whitney Houston, the Beatles, ABBA, Bee Gees and the Beach Boys; and perennial standards by the orchestras of Glenn Miller, Stan Kenton, Artie Shaw, Harry James, Benny Goodman, Maynard Ferguson, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Herb Alpert, Nelson Riddle, Sammy Nestico, Chuck Mangione, Tito Puente and Arturo Sandoval.

Subject to change without notice, SCG's dance/big bands this season will be showcasing what many are saying are some of the most engaging vocal artists to date for any big band!

SCG's artists have entertained heads of state, diplomats, dignitaries, VIPs and audiences in the thousands, with more significant achievements than most of the best of dance/big bands in Toronto's highly competitive music industry.
Whether it is a romancing soloist, intimate duet, sassy trio, classical string quartet, jazz quintet, latin combo, swinging big band or grand ballroom dance orchestra, performances have characteristically been described as professional, warm, lively and engaging.
Over $200,000 has been invested in the best available sound & recording equipment and other logistics to ensure that all orchestras under SCG's management continue to be among the most well-equipped entertainers in the industry.
Equipment list includes the finest high-end audio gear such as Roland VS-2480 workstations, Genelec 8040A monitors, Sony MDR-7509HD headphones, Monster Power Conditioner PRO 2500, Bose L1, QSC K12 and KSub high
performance speakers and Blue Kiwi quad cables; vintage microphones like the limited edition AKG C 414 LTD, Neumann TLM 49 and TLM 103; the world's quietest microphones, the Rode NT1-A and NT2-A; specialty microphones
such as the Audix D-6, Earthworks high definition SR30 matched pair, Blue Baby Bottle, Blueberry, CAD E-300, Sontronics SIGMA and Royer's flagship, the R-121; a broad selection of high quality tube and solid state preamps
such as the Universal Audio Solo 610, Rupert Neve Portico 5016, Mackie Onyx 800R, Focusrite OctoPre LE and Presonus Digimax FS.
The primary mandate of the SCG is to support the fundraising activities of major charities and humanitarian organizations dedicated to alleviating poverty in less developed communities outside Canada.
Net proceeds from performances and CD sales are donated to international agencies such as UNICEF, World Vision, Oxfam, CARE, Doctors Without Borders, KIVA and the Red Cross through the Global Poverty Relief Foundation (www.gprf.net) for disaster and poverty relief programs.
To date, the SCG has helped to raise over $1.5 million for charitable and humanitarian projects.
