Glenn Miller Orchestra 

You know the songs: "In the Mood," "Tuxedo Junction," "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me)," "(I've Got a Gal) In Kalamazoo," and so many others. But did you know that the Glenn Miller Orchestra is still touring and playing them? Miller believed that a band should have its own personality, and his band did in spades. Miller died in 1944 at the age of 40 when his transport plane disappeared over the English Channel during World War II. But his orchestra was reorganized in 1956 and has been on the road — playing 300 gigs a year — ever since.

The Glenn Miller Orchestra performs Saturday, September 15, 7:30 p.m. at the Hale Auditorium, Roberts Wesleyan College, 2301 Westside Drive. $20-$28. roberts.edu, 594-6008.
