The Glenn Miller Orchestra at the Lancaster Theatre
The renown Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1938 and became immensely popular, recording such big band chart successes as Moonlight Serenade, Pennsylvania 6-5000, In the Mood, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction, A String of Pearls, Chattanooga Choo Choo, At Last, (I’ve Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo, and many more. During the 1940’s, in fact, Glenn Miller achieved more hit records than either Elvis or the Beatles attained in their era. Hollywood contributed to the band’s popularity and that of its founder with the 1953 release of The Glenn Miller Story on the big screen.
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. This 18-piece ensemble is coming to the Lancaster Grand Theatre to recreate the golden era of swing. Join the fun and find yourself snapping and tapping to the classic music of a bygone era in a historic theatre.
