From the venue:

Nobody put more Americans “In the Mood” for great swing music than hitmaker Glenn Miller, leader of the most famous big band of all time. The Miller sound lives on through performances by the world-famous Glenn Miller Orchestra with music director, vocal soloist, and Atlanta native Nick Hilscher, “an exceptionally talented performer” (RythmeBeat.com).

The GMO’s “virtuoso performance captured the authentic sound of the period, from the vibrant richness of the full orchestra, which filled the large historic theater to the rafters (they don’t call them â ‚¬Ã‚Ëœbig bands’ for nothing!), to the jazzy swinging rhythms, stylized movements of the brass and mutes in time to the music, and sensational instrumental solos â ‚¬Ã‚” each and every one demonstrating a flawless command of the genre” (DC Metro Theatre Arts).
