The Lyric


On the 70th anniversary of Glenn Miller’s visit to Great Britain, Ray McVay is proud to present the world’s greatest big band live, in concert.

It was 1944 when the Glenn Miller Orchestra arrived on our shores to bring morale-boosting melodies to the US troops based here on the eve of the allied invasion of Europe. Now, in a show the whole family can enjoy, you can experience the excitement of the sound of this incredible orchestra.

The show features the fabulous harmonies of the Moonlight Serenaders, the sublime vocals of Catherine Sykes and Colin Anthony and the swinging jazz band, The Uptown Hall Gang. Also featured are the spectacular Jiving Lindy Hoppers with some heart-stopping routines from the Glenn Miller era..

Songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Louis Armstrong are all featured in a show which highlights the stars and bands of the era. You’ll hear the original arrangements of classic wartime chart toppers including Moonlight Serenade, American Patrol, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction and the iconic In the Mood.

Running time: 2hrs 30mins (approx, including a 20 minute interval)
