Artpark to welcome The Kingston Trio and Glenn Miller Orchestraby jmaloni
Two summertime Mainstage Theater concerts on sale now
Artpark announced today The Kingston Trio and Glenn Miller Orchestra are set to perform at the Mainstage Theater in the summer of 2014.
The Glenn Miller Orchestra returns to the Artpark stage July 7 at 6:30 p.m. after a two-year hiatus. The Kingston Trio will perform Aug. 21 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for each show are $29.50 in prime sections and $24.50 in sections A, B and C.
George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty are keeping the folk music revival alive with their Grammy-winning three-part harmonies on such rollicking tunes as "M.T.A." and ballads such as "Tom Dooley." Using only acoustic guitars and banjos, and singing simple yet memorable melodies, The Kingston Trio revolutionized popular music in the '50s and '60s.
Glenn Miller Orchestra's recordings of "In The Mood," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "A String of Pearls," "Moonlight Serenade" and "Tuxedo Junction" were all major hits. Miller played to sell-out crowds, and his music constantly dominated the airwaves throughout the '30s and '40s. At the height of his popularity, Miller tragically was killed in a plane crash in 1944. Now, more than 60 years since the public first embraced the successful Miller sound, both the legend and the music live on. The current Glenn Miller Orchestra, led by singer Nick Hilscher, plays an average of 300 live dates a year around the globe for millions of fans.
