Glenn Miller Orchestra

ROBERT HAM
8 pm., Monday July 08 | $47-$90.
 
[VINTAGE SWING JAZZ] Of all the ensembles that came out of jazz’s big-band era, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is one of the few with an instantly recognizable sound. Signature songs like “In the Mood” and “Pennsylvania 6-5000” have such a brightness to them, as if they were bursting from the inside out with big brass section lines and jubilant positivity. Even Miller’s ballads felt like they were floating on air. This version of the Orchestra features no original members, but consists of solid players (including one Portlander) who perfectly capture the spirit and energy of these classic tunes. 

Where: Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
