Glenn Miller Orchestra

Showtime: Friday, March 24, 2017

Location: Hammerson Hall

Tickets: $30.00 - $65.00 (HST included, service fees extra)

The world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra brings timeless classics like In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Pennsylvania 6-5000, String of Pearls and Tuxedo Junction back to the stage. Even 50 years after founding his famous orchestra Glenn Miller's music is alive and well. Over  20  musicians  and  singers  bring  the  unforgettable  Glenn  Miller  sound  and  perform  those songs that everyone remembers...

This is a show not to miss for jazz and swing fans alike or the incurable  romantics  who  want  to  step  back  in  time.  The  legendary  Glenn  Miller  was the  most successful of all the dance bandleaders back in the Swing era of the 1930s and '40s.

Formed in March 1938, the second Glenn Miller Orchestra soon began breaking attendance records all up and down the East Coast. At the New York State Fair in Syracuse it attracted the largest dancing crowd in the city’s history. The next night it topped Guy Lombardo’s all-time record at the Hershey Park Ballroom in Pennsylvania. The Orchestra was invited by ASCAP to perform at Carnegie Hall with three of the greatest bands ever — Paul Whiteman, Fred Waring and Benny Goodman — and created more of a stir than any of them.

There were record-breaking recordings, as well, such as “Tuxedo Junction”, which sold 115,000 copies in the first week. “In the Mood”, and “Pennsylvania 6-5000″, all appearing on the RCA Victor Bluebird label. In early 1940, Down Beat Magazine announced that Miller had topped all other bands in its Sweet Band Poll, and capping off this seemingly sudden rise to the top, there was, of course, Glenn Miller’s “Moonlight Serenade”.
