You can catch the Glenn Miller Orchestra in Townsville at the Townsville Civic Centre on Tuesday, May 19 with 25 musicians, singers and dancers on stage in a brand new show.
The Glenn Miller Orchestra returns by popular demand for this concert spectacular to honour the year of the ANZAC Centenary. Featuring America’s finest musicians together with the Moonlight Serenade Singers and The Broadway Swing Dancers, the concert will pay tribute to the spirit of ANZAC including a special feature of music and songs from the years of the Great War.
All the famous songs will be performed playing the original music arrangements for classics like Chattanooga Choo Choo, A String Of Pearls, Tuxedo Junction, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug and the greatest Miller hit of all time, In The Mood.
Major Glenn Miller served in the United States Army Air Force from 1942 until his untimely death in 1944 when he was travelling to entertain US troops in France and his aircraft disappeared in bad weather over the English Channel. Glenn Miller recorded many memorable hits from the 1914 to 1918 period which the orchestra will perform in tribute to the ANZACS (My Buddy, Over There, Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag, If You Were The Only Girl In The World and more).
