With its unique jazz sound, the Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year all around the world.
Glenn Miller Orchestra is a fully self-contained group consisting of the music director, five saxophone players, four trumpeters, four trombonists, three rhythm musicians (piano, bass, and drums), one male vocalist, and one female vocalist.
The orchestra has performed in all 50 United States, as well as throughout Europe, Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Guam, the Philippines, South America, and Central America.
With Nick Hilscher as the orchestra’s music director since January 2012, Glenn Miller Orchestra features special musical contributions from many fine arrangers including Bill Finegan, Jerry Gray, Billy May, Mort Lindsay, Deane Kinkaide, Joe Cribari, and Dave Wolpe with Big Band classics at the forefront.
