The Glenn Miller Orchestra at Wayne State College

The Wayne State College Black and Gold Performing Arts Series presentsthe legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra in concert Thursday, Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Ramsey Theatre, located in the Peterson Fine Arts Building on the Wayne State College campus. Fan favorites such as Chattanooga Choo-ChooMoonlight Serenade and A String of Pearlshave made theGlenn Miller Orchestra the most sought after big band in the world. The orchestra has entertained audiences for more than 60 years, performing in all 50 states as well as worldwide.

The fully self-contained group includes the music director, five saxophone players, four trumpeters, four trombonists, three rhythm musicians (piano, bass and drums), a male vocalist and a female vocalist. Vocalist Nick Hilscher has served as music director since 2012. Hilscher’s career spans his initial performance with the orchestra in 1998 as well as a storied solo career. TheGlenn Miller Orchestra is owned and operated by Glenn Miller Productions, Inc., under license from the Miller Estate.

Miller was one of the most successful dance bandleaders during the 1930s and 40s Swing Era. A string of hits, constant radio presence and celebrity at theatres, hotels and dance pavilions built and sustained the legend’s popularity. The major motion movie, The Glenn Miller Story,featuring Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson in 1954, solidified the demand for Miller’s musical talents. This led the Miller Estate to authorize the formation of the present Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1956.

This exceptional concert is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited. Ushers will direct attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information, please contact Dr. Melissa Derechailo at 402-375-7480.
