Glenn Miller Orchestra coming to town

SAINT AUGUSTINE – The EMMA Concert Association presents the Glenn Miller Orchestra at 7:30 p.an. 25 at the Flagler College Lewis Auditorium, 14 Granada St.

With its unique jazz sound, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time. The present Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently since, playing live dates every year all around the world. The orchestra has performed in all 50 United States, as well as throughout Europe, Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Guam, the Philippines, South and Central America. The Glenn Miller Orchestra has always been very musical, disciplined, and visually entertaining. The group has its own distinctive “sound.” That sound is created by the clarinet holding the melodic line, doubled or coupled with the tenor sax playing the same notes; and the harmonies produced by three other saxophones, while growling trombones and wailing trumpets add their oo-ahs.

BONUS! Ticket holders for the Glenn Miller Orchestra performance are invited for a FREE screening of the 1954 film, The Glenn Miller Story, starring Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson. There will be two showings at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24 at The Corazon Cinema and Café, 36 Granada St. Each attendee will be given one beverage (beer, wine, or non-alcoholic offering) of their choice! Additional drinks and food available for purchase. Seating is limited and you must register to attend.

Call 904-797-2800 for reservations.
