The Historic Riviera Theatre presents the legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra for one show only on Thursday, Nov. 4, at 2 p.m.

Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all the dance bandleaders back in the swing era of the 1930s and ‘40s. Because of popular demand, the Miller Estate authorized the formation of the present Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1956. The 19-member band continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements that keep exciting fans who have not heard them played in a long time. 

Additionally, they are also playing more modern selections in the "Big Band" style, carefully selecting only those newer tunes that lend themselves naturally to the Miller style and sound, carefully selected pieces that will stay around for awhile.   

For further information, or for tickets, call the Riviera Theatre Box Office at 692-2413, Monday- Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or order online at www.rivieratheatre.org.
