Much more than just a concert, In the Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and other big band greats of the '40s. Complete with costumes, choreography, a 13-piece big band and six singer-dancers, this show pays homage to America's greatest generation, when people boogied to up-tempo big band rhythms. Hear songs like "In the Mood," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Sing, Sing, Sing" and more timeless hits. Many of the musical arrangements were written by Vic Schoen, the conductor and arranger for The Andrews Sisters, and music director for both Universal and Paramount Pictures. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, brassy, sentimental music of this pivotal time in America's history. Learn More

Baroque music is light and effervescent like champagne. I always feel happy after the baroque concerts and wonder why so few attend. The flute concerto was my favorite of this evening. The young soloist had an unusual, full moon night sort of tone. The Brandenburg concerto showed the power and elegance of a small cohort of excellent musicians--also a highlight of the evening.
