THE GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA

The Iconic Big Band of the 1940’s

Touring NZ May 31-June 30


=

As we reflect on ANZAC Day this Thursday April 25 and remember the sacrifices that the New Zealand and Australian Armed Forces and their loved ones endured, we can be proud of the mighty ANZAC legend that has shaped the identity of both nations and how we view the past, present and future.

The Glenn Miller Orchestra has that special connection with the early 1940's and performed 800 concerts for the troops in Europe, as well as the recordings that reached an adoring audience world-wide. Glenn Miller in fact formed the Army Air Force Band in 1942.

Much of the cherished music and special arrangements performed by this band will be featured in the forthcoming orchestra concerts here in New Zealand.


On the 'eve' of Glenn Miller's 75th Anniversary will be the inaugural New Zealand tour for the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra - to be joined by The Moonlight Serenade Singers and The Broadway Swing Dancers, in performing the great 'Big Band' hits with the original Glenn Miller arrangements for tunes such as Chattanooga Choo-Choo, In the Mood, Tuxedo Junction and Moonlight Serenade, to name a few. The show also includes the music of The Andrews Sisters, the Frank Sinatra Song Book, the romantic World
War II melodies made famous by Vera Lynn. This is the

music that captivated and entertained millions of people worldwide - now brought together on stage in a nostalgic concert spectacular in New Zealand.


The tickets are selling fast for the Orchestra's whistle stop tour of 18 cities and towns around New Zealand, as many look forward to a sentimental journey down memory lane and for the younger audience to enjoy the timeless music from the golden age of swing.

Due to overwhelming popular demand resulting in the two Auckland shows on June 15 almost full, the Glenn Miller Orchestra will back for a 3rd & Final Auckland show on SUNDAY 30 JUNE at 2:30 pm - the Orchestra's very last day in NZ after a month of 23 hugely successful concerts in 18 NZ cities!

Tickets for the 3rd show go on sale Friday 26 April @ 3 pm.

(incl. Discounts for Groups & Concessions)

Purchase tickets and enjoy these world-class musicians, singers and dancers live on show touring extensively for the first time throughout New Zealand from

Friday May 31 to Wednesday June 26th.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Pretence. No Bullshit. Fine Poem.
