You may not think of great music from the Big Band era when someone mentions naval aviation. But in Pensacola this February, the combination will delight folks on three separate occasions.
Kicking off the trio of concerts is the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, led by Buddy Morrow. Their national tour will stop here on February 2, and the musicians will be eager to share their tunes “for the kids” (of all ages).
February 18 brings another famous group to the stage. The Glenn Miller Orchestra will show off their unique jazz renditions, and will leave you happily humming the tunes afterward.
Orlando Jazz closes out the series of concerts on February 27. This eclectic group will highlight the many famous swing bands of the 1940s, evoking memories every step of the way.
All concerts will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Blue Angels Atrium of the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard the Pensacola Naval Air Station. Tickets are $27.50 for the general public and $22.50 for museum foundation members. For details, call 800-327-5002.
