Glen Miller's Music at the Lyceum

I went to the concert at the Lyceum Theatre in Crewe put on by the Glen Miller Orchestra this afternoon. The smallish theatre was quite packed, at least in the stalls where I could see, with a mainly elderly audience. The performance was very good, though I found it too loud in places, especially the trumpets. The programme covered a wide selection of favourites and some lesser known pieces. These included arrangements based on Tchaikovsky's piano concerto No.1 and the 1812 overture. The singers with the band were also very professional, though the Sinatra tribute by the crooner seemed unnecessary. The female trio, channeling the Andrews Sisters, were entertaining, but the solo female singer was outstanding. A very pleasant afternoon.
