I Am Definitely "In the Mood"
Well, my classic movie-lovin' friends, besides loving the films of the 1940's, are any of y'all drawn to the music of that decade as well? I know I am; the big band music which is so synonymous with the 1940's completely and totally draws me in. I love it! What I wouldn't give to spend a Saturday evening in a vintage outfit, moving on the dance floor to the sounds of Glenn Miller and his orchestra.
With my love for 1940's music, I was positively thrilled when I discovered that there is an international touring group solely dedicated to those wonderful big band sounds. Featuring the In the Mood singers and dancers and the String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra, In the Mood, a 1940's Musical Revue has just begun its 20th year of touring the world. Even better...my city is one of the stops on their fall tour; in fact, Veteran's Day is the day they will be in my neck of the woods. Without question, I am going to attend this concert (with my daughter); in fact, we already have our tickets. As for price, I think it is very reasonable. Our tickets were $29.50 each...and that is for seating in the best section of our performing arts auditorium. (Just for cost comparison, when we went to see Wicked in the same auditorium, the tickets were $92.50 each.)
So, for those of y'all who like the musical sounds of the 1940's, pop by the In the Mood Live website (HERE) to see if your city is one of the dozens on their fall tour schedule. Maybe, like my daughter and me, you will have a chance to tap your foot to those wonderful big band tunes.
