Event description: 

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director. The Yale Bands will present its acclaimed Glenn Miller radio show broadcast re-enactment from Woolsey Hall to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings at Normandy. The Bands premiered the show at Woolsey Hall in 1994 for the 50th anniversary year, and, by popular demand, have repeated it multiple times both domestically and abroad (most notably in France in June 1944!). The second half of the concert will feature a new twist – an old fashioned “big band” Christmas Concert. Details TBA.
