When I was a teenager, Glenn Miller music was all the go at the many dances I frequented, so I’m glad to see the music still lives on. If you love the music of the 40s, this is a must see.

When I was a teenager, Glenn Miller music was all the go at the many dances I frequented, so I’m glad to see the music still lives on. If you love the music of the 40s, this is a must see.

The World famous Glenn Miller Orchestra features 25 Musicians, Singers and Dancers – a  presentation that highlights the great ‘Big Band’ hits, the original Glenn Miller arrangements, the music of The Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and the romantic World War II melodies made famous by Vera Lynn – music which captivated millions of people worldwide- are all brought together on stage in a nostalgic concert spectacular.

The Glenn Miller musical arrangements are unique; even after 78 years, they are still heard worldwide; timeless icons of American culture such as Chattanooga Choo-Choo, In the Mood, Tuxedo Junction, A String of Pearls, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug and Pennsylvania 6- 5000….music hits which captivated millions of people. “The Glenn Miller Orchestra is a colourful and flamboyant evening filled with fun and nostalgia of the 30s and 40s. Our unique jazz sound is sought all around the world and in addition to recreating the golden era of swing, we bring to life the colour, costumes and spirit. Having travelled across the globe, The Glenn Miller Orchestra is delighted to be bringing iconic tunes such as In The Mood and Moonlight Serenade to Australia and salute the Centenary of the ANZAC”, said Musical Director Rick Gerber.
