CTAC Live – The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra
Sponsored by DRH Health and Duncan Area Economic Development Foundation (DAEDF)
An orchestra of professional musicians carrying on the traditions set by the founder, Glenn Miller.
“A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality.” – Glenn Miller
In his book “Glenn Miller & His Orchestra”, George Simon wrote this about the man. “His favorite author was Damon Runyon. His favorite book was the Bible. Spencer Tracy and Olivia de Havilland were his favorite movie actor and actress. His big loves were trout fishing, playing baseball, listening to good music, sleep and money. His pet hates were bad swing, early-morning telephone calls (he liked to sleep from 4 a.m. to noon), and the phrase ‘goodbye now’. His favorite quotation, one he stated, was not from the Bible, nor from Runyon, but from Duke Ellington: ‘It Don’t Mean a Thing If it Ain’t Got that Swing!’
