The Glen Miller Orchestra tribute show will celebrate its long-awaited return to Australia, by performing at a number of venues including at the Wyong Art House, on Friday, September 8.
The Glenn Miller Orchestra show is a concert spectacular featuring the music of the 1940s, from the Golden era of Swing to a journey down memory lane to celebrate the Glenn Miller Orchestra’s 80th anniversary.
The tribute orchestra will feature 24 musicians, singers and dancers in a presentation that highlights the ‘Big Band’ hits, the original Glenn Miller arrangements, the music of The Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, and the romantic World War II melodies made famous by Vera Lynn. The music, which captivated millions of people worldwide, will all be brought together on stage in a nostalgic concert spectacular.
The concert will also feature dance routines by the Broadway Swing Dancers. Rick Gerber, the Musical Director, said: “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 to Australia,” Mr Gerber said.
