Yale Bands Glenn Miller Holiday Season Concert
The Yale Bands will present its acclaimed radio show re-enactment of Glenn Miller’s 1943-44 Army Air Forces Band radio broadcasts from Woolsey Hall to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings at Normandy. The Bands premiered the show at Woolsey in 1994 for the 50th anniversary year, and, by popular demand, have repeated it multiple times both domestically and abroad (most notably in France in June 1994). Half of the concert will feature a new twist – an old-fashioned “big band” Christmas concert, presented by an all-women jazz band, as it would have been in the 1940s when the men were away at war.
Tickets from $23, students $15
