Elementary school students to get special experience with Celebrate America Show


The 14th annual big band show “In the Miller Mood” returns to Utah State University Thursday, Friday and Saturday September 5-7. The Broadway-type show includes dinner and dancing.

Production director Brenda Anthony says the timeless sound and style of Glen Miller’s music and the big band era will once again fascinate the audience.

Vice President and business manager Gene Thomson says something new this year is a Tuesday night educational outreach to children.

“There’s a group of 4th and 5th grade students from Wilson Elementary. The principal there has given great support to this program as an education opportunity in studying this era with the students, even though they have been in school only a short time,” says Thomson. “They’ll be participating in that Tuesday night dress rehearsal. Others who wish to come can also get show-only tickets.”

Thomson says a highlight of each evening will be the military tributes to veterans and current members of the military.
