“A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality.” – Glenn Miller
The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra was one of the most successful of all dance bandleaders back in the Swing Era of the 1930s and 1940s. With a matchless string of hit records, the constant impact of radio broadcasts, and the drawing power at theatres, hotels, and dance pavilions, the Glenn Miller Orchestra grew quickly in popularity.
The present Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently ever since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year all around the world for more than half a million people annually. This 18-member band is directed by the young and dynamic Nick Hilscher. With its unique jazz sound and extensive repertoire, the Orchestra is still considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time! Appealing to both old and new audiences, this two-hour musical experience has become a must-see show for jazz and swing fans alike. Step back in time and enjoy their biggest hits like Moonlight Serenade, Chattanooga Choo Choo, and In the Mood.
