The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful dance bandleaders in the Swing era of the 1930s and 1940s. The Miller Estate authorized the formation of the 19-member orchestra in 1956, and it has been touring ever since. With its unique jazz sound, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time.
In the event that tickets remain for the concert, Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club,” one hour prior to the event. The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold one hour before the event for $10 each.
