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

The music was phenomenal! The headliners were great - very charismatic. Our only complaint was the size of the venue. We would have preferred to see a smaller ensemble - maybe 5-8 musicians in a smaller venue, much more true to the real-life Cotton Club experience. However, the interaction between the headliners and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra was great!

Lots of pops fun with the Symphony, and the guest artists were terrific. As a longtime swing music fan, I enjoyed every moment. A tiny bit more background on the era and the numbers and the stars who popularized them would have been welcome.
