On Sunday some of Glenn Miller‘s rarer arrangements will be heard in Eastbourne when Ray McVay, Musical Director of the original BBC Come Dancing series, brings the world’s greatest big band to the Congress Theatre.
Keeping the show fresh, this year the Glenn Miller Orchestra will be joined by a string section, the first time this has happened since the great man himself brought his orchestra over here in 1944.
It’s a rare chance to hear all the usual hits – In the Mood, Tuxedo Junction, Chattanooga Choo Choo – performed in an unusual way, with help from The Moonlight Serenaders, and vocalists Catherine Sykes and Colin Anthony. Swinging jazz band, The Uptown Hall Gang, will also be standing to attention.
WHAT: The Glenn Miller Orchestra – Strings Attached!
WHERE: The Congress Theatre, Eastbourne
WHEN: Sunday August 25, 3pm
TICKETS COST: from £18.50
