Glenn Miller

File under:  I never thought I’d see the day.  The day the the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra would perform at the Grand Forks County Historical Society gazebo in Grand Forks.  Today was that day.

As a fan of music from the 1940’s, it was nothing short of a thrill for me.  I listen to big band music every day of my life.  No joke.  I was in hog heaven.

The society’s beautiful gazebo never looked better.  The music coming from it never sounded better.

Thank you to the Grand Forks County Historical Society for bringing this tremendous event to us.

To paraphrase the immortal Marilyn Hagerty, this is why we live here.

    It was a great event. A little windy but an otherwise perfect day for an outdoor concert. The band is world class. I haven’t heard a tight, swinging band like that around here in a long time. Great vocals all around. The 5 part harmony was spot on.

    What a treat to have a performance of this calibre in Grand Foks – and free! There was a nice crowd but there should have been many more.

    Thank you to all who sponsored/supported this concert. It was amazing and a real treat.
