The Glenn Miller Orchestra: America’s greatest Big Band
7:30 PM

Dana Center - (Koonz Theatre)

Big Band great Glenn Miller got his start playing with the likes of Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey in the 1920’s before going out on his own in 1938 with a unique band that gave the clarinet the melodic line with the tenor sax accompanying.

After years of struggle, tunes like Moonlight Serenade and In The Mood shot The Glenn Miller Orchestra to the very pinnacle of fame. During WWII, Glenn Miller served as head of The Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band, logging over 800 performances and 300 personal appearances for US and Allied Troops. When the transport plane carrying Miller and others disappeared without a trace over the English Channel in 1944, his legacy seemed to come to a tragic close. But in 1956, after the film The Glenn Miller Story with Jimmy Stewart revived interest in the man and his music, the band was reformed.

Two generations later, The Glenn Miller Orchestra continue to thrill audiences worldwide with a unique big band sound and an incredible repertoire of Glenn Miller favorites from the ‘30’s and ‘40’s Swing era. Back by popular demand, you’ll love The Glenn Miller Orchestra’s big band sound whether you’re a part of the Greatest Generation or a brass-and-rhythm-loving Millennial!

Gleaming gold brass, powerful and harmonious sounds that could be measured by spectators on the balcony. BMV blog

A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality. Glenn Miller
