The Glenn Miller Orchestra to Perform at the Kauffman Center
The legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra from New York will perform one night only in Kansas City as they tour the world, bringing timeless classics such as "In the Mood," "Moonlight Serenade," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Pennsylvania 6-5000," "String of Pearls," and "Tuxedo Junction" to the stage. Even seventy-five years after the founding of this famous orchestra, Glenn Miller's music is alive and well.
On Thursday, June 14 musicians and singers will bring the unforgettable Glenn Miller sound to Muriel Kauffman Theatre at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, performing timeless songs that everyone remembers. This is a show not to miss for jazz and swing fans alike and for the incurable romantics who want to step back in time. The legendary Glenn Miller was the most successful of all the dance bandleaders during the Swing Era of the 1930s and '40s.
Producer Didier Morissonneau is proud to bring the most famous orchestra of all time to the Kansas City music scene to perform their classic two-hour greatest hits show, directed by the dynamic Nick Hilsher.
Tickets for this event range from $48 to $68 plus applicable fees, and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, December 1.
Tickets will be available through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222, via the Kauffman Center mobile app, or online at www.kauffmancenter.org.
