In the Mood
Much more than just a concert, In the Mood is a fully staged musical tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and all the big band greats of the '40s. Complete with costumes and choreography, In the Mood pays homage to America's greatest generation, when people boogied to up-tempo big band rhythms and swayed to intimate ballads. 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 at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido. The songs and cast are updated regularly, so even if you've seen the show before, expect a few surprises.
