InspirationofBroadway_2

    The opening concert will feature the Grammy-nominated Ernie Haase & Signature Sound in concert with Broadway legend J. Mark McVey. Big hopes and out-of-the-box ideas best describe Ernie Haase who has never been one to think small. He has traveled around the world offering joy and encouragement through the music of his group, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound.

    J. Mark McVey made his Broadway debut as Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables” after having won the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Actor while on tour. He was also the first American to perform the role in London’s West End. He reprised the role with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to sold-out crowds at the Hollywood Bowl and again for the 25th Anniversary Tour of “Les Miserables” where he won the Ovation Award and the BroadwayWorld.com Award on his way to eclipsing 3,268 performances in ‘Les Mis’.

THE GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA
*Thursday, April 26, 2018

GlennMillerOrch_2

The world-famous Glenn Miller Orchestra will close out the 2017-18 season. This is just about the only remaining full-time touring big band.

Originally formed in 1937 by Glenn Miller, following his already distinguished playing career with the likes of Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa and others, the first Glenn Miller Orchestra was destined for failure. However, in 1938, the Second Glenn Miller Orchestra began breaking records all up and down the East Coast, and thus began a run of unparalleled success for the band. They received numerous invitations to play in some of the country’s most prestigious venues and received lucrative recording contracts as well.

World War II was just around the corner and in 1942 Alton Glenn Miller reported for induction into the U.S. Army. Assigned to the Army Air Corps, where he ultimately organized the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band which was shipped out to England in 1943, presenting over 800 performances in less than a year. In the fall of 1944, the band was to be sent on a six-week tour of Europe and would be stationed in the now-liberated city of Paris during that time. Miller decided to go on ahead in order to make the proper arrangements and his plane disappeared over the English Channel, never to be seen again.

It is a testament to his greatness that the band has been kept alive during the intervening seventy-plus years  by a variety of directors. The current director is Nick Hilscher who was influenced very early in life by the musical greats Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Buddy Holly, Tommy Dorsey, and last but certainly not least, Glenn Miller.
