The Davis High School Jazz Moonlight Orchestra, under the direction of Steve Hendricks, presents “Moonlight Serenade,” an evening of big band music featuring the Moonlight Singers, directed by Jane Fjeldstead. These groups were formed 24 years ago, keeping alive the music of Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey, and other big-band legends.
The Moonlight Singers will perform classic tunes originated by Glenn Miller’s Modernaires. Glenn Miller- the man responsible for making Big Band swing music the most popular genre of the 1930s and ‘40s- gave his life serving our country during World War II. In honor of him, one tradition during the Moonlight Serenade’s concerts is recognizing those who have served our country.
