The Glenn Miller Orchestra
Directed by Ray McVay
One night only at Londons IndigO2 at the O2 Arena
Wednesday 18th May 2011
Swing right back to the glory days of the 1940s Big Band
Era on Wednesday 18th May 2011 as the world famous Glenn Miller
Orchestra makes a special one off performance at the IndigO2,
Londons newest and most intimate live music venue.
This is the first time that the big band sound has been heard
at the O2 and is your only chance to see the Glenn Miller Orchestra
in London, the only ensemble approved by the Glenn Miller Estate
to use the name of arguably one of the most talented composers,
jazz musicians and big band leaders of all time.
Music on the night will include The Glenn Miller Orchestra signature
tune Moonlight Serenade and other classic scores including American
Patrol, Chattanooga Choo Choo, A String of Pearls, Tuxedo Junction,
Little Brown Jug and Pennsylvania 6-500 - songs that defined a
generation and continue to endure more than 60 years after they
were first played.
Formed in 1988 in conjunction with the Glenn Miller Productions
of New York, The Glenn Miller Orchestra allows fans to experience
the music exactly as it would have been played in the dancehalls
of post-war 1940s America. Directed by Ray McVay, the Orchestra
has maintained the exact on stage line-up devised by Glenn, consisting
of the leader, five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones
and three rhythms plus a male and female vocalist.
The band perform from a library of more than 200 scores including
arrangements from both the civilian and Army/Air Force orchestras
and contributions from the world's greatest arrangers including
Jerry Gray, Billy May and Bill Finegan and to add to the air of
nostalgia the Glynn Miller Orchestra perform in US Air Force Army
uniforms in the second half of the show.
