Audiences of all ages will be thrilled by the sound of the incredible Glenn Miller Orchestra!

Through an arrangement with Glenn Miller Productions in New York, veteran band-leader Ray McVay has put together an orchestra we feel the maestro would be proud of were he here to see it.

The exact stage line-up devised by Glenn has been maintained, consisting of the leader, five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones and three rhythm plus a male and female vocalist. The singers perform both individually and as part of The Moonlight Serenaders vocal group.

​Back in the big band era of the 1940’s, any dance band worth its salt had a distinctive signature tune. The theme of The Glenn Miller Orchestra was and remains, Moonlight Serenade. Interestingly though, Glenn Miller originally wrote the music of the song as an exercise for a music arranging course. He composed it long before he had organised his orchestra and today Moonlight Serenade is considered a standard in the field of popular music. Its popularity as an instrumental continues undiminished.

Featuring: In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, American Patrol, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction and the song that became pop history’s first gold disc, Chattanooga Choo Choo!
