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

This was a terrific performance. The first half of the program had to be changed because the solo cellist was unable to get to the US from Europe due to the volcano in Iceland. The guest conductor was also different for the same reason. Remarkably, the substitutions were excellent.
I took my boyfriend who is a classical music novice and the he found the commentary they provide on the Sunday matinees very helpful. I would recommend this series to anyone interested in learning more about what to listen for.
Roberto Abbado conducts the Seattle Symphony and cellist Xavier Phillips. The program will feature Hector Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture, Henri Dutilleux’s Tout un monde lointain (A Whole Distant World) for Cello and Orchestra, and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67.
