Never miss another 'The Glenn Miller Orchestra UK' show
The Glenn Miller AAF Orchestra With Strings: The Glenn Miller Orchestra UK
Strings in Glenn Miller's line-up were most apparent in his Army Air Force band which he brought to Europe in 1942. Following Miller's disappearance in 1944, and the end of the war a year later, the band returned to the States. Since then, fans of Glenn Miller have been denied the opportunity to hear the orchestra in concert with a string section.
Ray McVay, leader of the Glenn Miller Orchestra and passionate lover of Glenn Miller music, has decided that the fans deserve a chance to enjoy some of Glenn's very best arrangements. Ray always tries to keep the shows fresh while not forgetting that regular patrons naturally demand that Miller's hits be played.
The Glenn Miller Orchestra UK has maintained the exact line-up on stage devised by Glenn, consisting of the leader, five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones and three rhythm plus a male and female vocalist.
The singers perform both individually and as part of The Moonlight Serenaders vocal group. The Uptown Hall Gang - an outstanding Dixieland group drawn from members of the orchestra is also featured.
Ray McVay leads.
