Cary, NC — The Glenn Miller Orchestra is going to be in town this weekend. The Lounge Doctors are, too, plus several other interesting weekend events.

Glenn Miller Orchestra

Glenn Miller changed the sound of popular music, creating his own unique big band swing.

Miller burst across the scene like a shooting star, commanding the music scene from 1938 until his mysterious death in 1944. From GlennMillerOrchestra.com:

In the Fall of 1944, the band was scheduled to be sent on a six-week tour of Europe and would be stationed in Paris during that time. Miller decided to go ahead, in order to make the proper arrangements for the group’s arrival. And so, on December 15th, Glenn Miller boarded a transport plane to Paris, never to be seen again.

The current Glenn Miller Orchestra line-up started in 1956 and plays about 300 shows around the world every year. This weekend, they’re coming to Cary.
