State Theatre For The Arts is proud to present: The World Famous GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA

Glenn Miller and His Orchestra made a big impact right before and during WW2, and it had
more hit records in one year than anybody in the history of the recording industry. In fact, its
recording of Chattanooga Choo-Choo earned the first Gold Record ever awarded to a
performing artist. Additional Gold Record recordings include “In the Mood” and “In The
Christmas Mood,” Volume I & II.

Back in the days of the big band era of the forties, any dance band “worth its salt” had a
distinctive theme song. It was the musical signature with which they signed on and signed off at
their engagements and radio broadcasts. The theme of Glenn Miller and His Orchestra was
the beautiful Moonlight Serenade, and it is still the signature tune of the Glenn Miller
Orchestra today. Interestingly enough, Glenn Miller originally wrote the music of the song
himself as an exercise for a course in arranging. He composed it long before he organized his
band, when he was a trombonist and arranger with Ray Noble’s famous band.

Today, it is considered a standard in the field of popular music with its popularity as an
instrumental continuing undiminished through the years.

It is now more than 75 years since Glenn Miller first succeeded with the Orchestra, which still
bears his name until this day. Except for a few years following his disappearance, Glenn’s
orchestra and music have been heard around the world continuously since 1938.

The World Famous, Glenn Miller Orchestra, is the most popular and sought after big band in the world today, for both concert and swing dance engagements. With its unique jazz sound, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time. The present Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year all around the world. Nick Hilscher is the orchestra’s present music director.
