'Tunes of Glory'
You'd all heard of Syd Lawrence and his Orchestra... well since his retirement in 1996 the guys have been directed by Chris Dean and has over 1200 classic Big Band titles including Glenn Miller's 'Moonlight Serenade' and 'In The Mood', Tommy Dorsey's 'I'm Getting Sentimental Over You' and a whole lot more!
Hits from the Great American Songbooks of George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin and singers Frank Sinatra, Nat 'King' Cole, Sammy Davis Jnr, etc are also featured in the programme.
Chris Dean believes in leading the Orchestra with pace and good humour, performing the classics of the swing era in a way that entertains the audience. 'Music is what people want to hear' Chris says... 'information they can get in books. They come to a concert to be entertained, not to hear a lecture'. Too True!
