The Glenn Miller Orchestra, a concert spectacular is returning to Australia to honour the year of the ANZAC centenary, featuring the great wartime songs and all the favourite Glenn Miller hits and more. This will be a sentimental journey down memory lane to celebrate the Glenn Miller Orchestra’s 78th anniversary as part of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, with two shows in the Festival Theatre on Friday 19 June.

The world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra will also feature 25 musicians, singers and dancers – a presentation that highlights the great ‘Big Band’ hits, the original Glenn Miller arrangements, the music of The Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and the romantic World War II melodies made famous by Vera Lynn – music which captivated millions of people worldwide- are all brought together on stage in a nostalgic concert spectacular.

The Glenn Miller musical arrangements are unique; even after 78 years, they are still heard worldwide; timeless icons of American culture such as Chattanooga Choo-Choo, In the Mood, Tuxedo Junction, A String of Pearls, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug and Pennsylvania 6- 5000….music hits which captivated millions of people.

“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 such as In The Mood and Moonlight Serenade to Australia and salute the Centenary of the ANZAC”, said Musical Director Rick Gerber.

“America means freedom and there’s no expression of freedom quite so sincere as music….and a band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality” – Glenn Miller

An evening of nostalgia….unforgettable music….an absolutely brilliant concert”….The Australian Stage
