The Glenn Miller Orchestra Announces NZ Tour

The Glenn Miller Orchestra with Musical Director Rick Gerber, return to NZ following their triumphant 2013 tour when they took the country by storm in what was one of the largest international concert tours in recent years. The orchestra will again perform nationwide at 22 different locations between Kerikeri in the north and Invercargill down south. 

Take a sentimental journey with the official Glenn Miller Orchestra for this concert tour spectacular to honour the year of the ANZAC Centenary. Featuring America’s finest musicians together with the Moonlight Serenade Singers and the Broadway Swing Dancers. In the Spirit of Anzac, the concert will also feature iconic music and songs from the years of the Great War.

All the music hits that continues to captivate millions of people from the Glenn Miller classics song-book will be performed by the Orchestra with the original music arrangements; timeless icons of American culture such as Chattanooga Choo Choo, A String of Pearls, Tuxedo Junction, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug and the greatest Miller hit of all time, In The Mood.

“The Glenn Miller Orchestra is a colourful and flamboyant evening filled with fun and nostalgia of the 30s and 40s. Our unique jazz sound is sought all around the world and in addition to recreating the golden era of swing, we bring to life the colour, costumes and spirit. Having travelled across the globe, The Glenn Miller Orchestra is delighted to be bringing iconic tunes such as In The Mood and Moonlight Serenade back to New Zealand,” said Rick Gerber, Musical Director.
