    Glenn-Miller

    Glenn Miller Orchestra

    Tuesday, September 29, 2020
    Pangle Hall @ 7:30 pm

    The Glenn Miller Orchestra has always been very musical, disciplined, and visually entertaining, having 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.
