Grand Rapids —The legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra from New York will perform one night only in Grand Rapids as they tour the world, bringing timeless classics like In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Pennsylvania 6-5000, String of Pearls and Tuxedo Junction back to the stage. Even 80 years after founding his famous orchestra, Glenn Miller’s music is alive and well.
On a memorable evening, Thursday, MAY 30, 2019 at 7:30 PM, 18 musicians and singers will bring the unforgettable Glenn Miller sound to SMG-managed DeVos Performance Hall, performing timeless songs that everyone remembers. This is a must-see show for jazz and swing fans alike or the incurable romantics who want to step back in time. The legendary Glenn Miller was the most successful of all the dance bandleaders back in the Swing era of the 1930s and 1940s.
Producer Didier Morissonneau is proud to bring the most famous orchestra of all time to the Michigan music scene, to perform their classic two-hour greatest hits show, directed by the young and dynamic Nick Hilsher!
