The Historic Riviera Theatre presents The Glenn Miller Orchestra on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 7:30 p.m. for one performance only.

The legendary 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. Additionally, the musicians are playing more modern selections in the "Big Band" style, carefully selecting only those newer tunes that lend themselves naturally to the Miller sound and style.

Ticket prices are $30-$35 adult and $15-$20 for students. For more information, call the Riviera Theatre box office at 716-692-2413, Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or order online at www.rivieratheatre.org. The Riviera Theatre is located at 67 Webster St., North Tonawanda.
