About

This Swing-era jazz orchestra has toured year-round since 1956 touting tunes popularized by Glenn Miller and the distinctive reed sound he created with his band. Featured vocalist Maria Schafer joins Musical Director Nick Hilscher to form the vocal quintet "The Moonlight Serenaders" in homage to original Glenn Miller vocal group The Modernaires. The group's songbook includes tunes from the 1940s to the 1960s featuring the phenomenal writing skills of arrangers including Billy May and Nelson Riddle.
