Mallorca concerts: Glenn Miller

Music from the golden age of Swing in Palma

It's Miller time once again in Palma as one of the city's favourite big bands returns for yet another concert at the Auditorium on 27th March. At 21:00. The Original Glenn Miller
Orchestra are booked for another night of nostalgia, fine music, perfect harmonies and some rather acrobatic dancing.

It's over 70 years since the great bandleader Miller disappeared along with his aircraft on a mission over France, but the sound of his orchestra still epitomises those dark war days and gets us
tapping our feet too. Obviously, the band's billing contains a little poetic license but basically has the exact same line up as the 1940's Miller combo - leader, five saxophones, four trumpets,
four trombones and three rhythm plus a male and female vocalist – and was formed in conjunction with the official Glenn Miller productions in New York.

In effect, it's the original orchestra in format, led by the very experienced Ray McVay and featuring the Andrews Sisters and the Jiving Lindy Hoppers who you can probably work out are singers and
dancers! The orchestra itself has a whole repertoire of 200 tunes with many Miller compositions but now just slightly rearranged for modern times.

With the Swing style enjoying a resurgence, particularly here in Mallorca with bands small and large playing to
enthusiastic groups of dancers with all the moves from the 40's there's sure to be a big crowd at the auditorium.
