The Glenn Miller Orchestra
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra preserves the legacy of one of America's great big bands. A successful musician and arranger for bands like Tommy Dorsey and Ray Noble, Glenn Miller struggled with his own orchestra's recordings for several years before hitting on a sound that brought him huge success. Glenn Miller discovered the magic of the reed section and nurtured his discovery until it grew into a full-fledged phenomenon. His unique take on the swing sound and careful use of instrumentation made his orchestra one of the most sought-after big bands of the 20th century. Riding high with hits like Tuxedo Junction that attracted record-breaking crowds, Glenn Miller disbanded his orchestra in 1942 at the height of its popularity to volunteer for the Army. He had a firm belief that the power of his music could raise morale in the dark times of war, so he organized and led the famous Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. It went to Europe to entertain servicemen performing numerous shows live and on radio. Then tragedy struck. On December 15, 1944, Major Miller took off in a single engine plane from Europe to precede his band to France, disappearing over the English Channel, and was never seen again. The army declared him officially dead a year later.
