Glenn Miller Orchestra on CCB

The Glenn Miller Orchestra returns to Lisbon for 2 concerts at the Main Auditorium, in Belém Cultural Center on February 18th and 19th.

Born in 1904, Glenn Miller got his musical start when, one day, his father brought home a mandolin. Glenn promptly traded it for an old battered horn, which he practiced every chance he got.

Dropped from college to focus on his music career, Glenn Miller formed, in a second try, in March 1938, the Glenn Miller Orchestra and soon began breaking attendance records all up and down the East Coast.

The orchestra returns, once again, to Portugal, where previous concerts have been a success. Directed by maestro Ray McVay it promises another delightful show crammed with hits from the golden period of the history of jazz, in which such classics such as “Moonlight”, “Serenade”, “In The Mood”, “Tuxedo Junction” and others can be heard.

On stage there will be 20 musicians and singers promising two hours of show time, that will drop us right back into the 1930s.
