Program Notes

Glenn Miller and his orchestra helped define the sound of the swing era. Here is an entertaining and authentically scored medley that includes the signature tunes: In the Mood; A String of Pearls; Tuxedo Junction and Pennsylvania 6-5000.

-Program Note by publisher


After playing in several big bands, Glenn Miller organized his own band in 1938. Within four years, it was the most popular band in America. He joined the U.S. Army Special Forces in October, 1942, and quickly assembled an outstanding band. From the scores of his hit tunes and arrangements, this medley includes Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, and Pennsylvania 6-5000.
