CELEBRITY BRASS                                         Journalist: Myriam Sainson

les cuivres de la clbrit 1With a performance by the legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra (New York) at the Theatre Granada, on Saturday, April 28, one could expect nothing less than a flamboyant and colourful performance, with rich red costumes worn by the fifteen musicians known as the "Moonlight Serenaders", gleaming gold brass, powerful and harmonious sounds that could be measured by spectators on the balcony, in all its true richness. A first in Sherbrooke for this renowned orchestra, celebrating 75 years of existence! Glenn Miller Orchestra, after Sherbrooke, will continue his Québécois tour until May 17, appearing in Victoriaville - on Sunday, April 29, in Quebec - on May 2, with Grand Theatre and many other cities, before returning to the United States. Glenn Miller Orchestra or Brass band is the only official swing group in the world which revives, in all authenticity, the music of jazzman Glenn Miller who mysteriously disappeared, December 15, 1944, on the Atlantic, aboard an airliner -- New-York-Paris.

It was destined to be a remarkable concert: actually starting on time, the work discipline involved, the professionalism, the atmosphere of richness which rose from the stage, among the musicians, the musical director, singer and organizer, Nick Hilscherles cuivres de la clbrit 2 and the general public. Without him, nothing would ever have been the same. An exceptionally talented performer, he showers the entire orchestra with winds of happiness and pleasure that can only serve to motivate each of the instrumentalists, who must, in turn, do their own personal best. These sounds blend with those of the saxophones, trumpets, trombones, base, drums and piano... reviving the 30s-40s swing of Glenn Miller, with the hits that sold millions of copies like, "Chattanooga Choo Choo" (1941); "Don' t sit under the Apple Tree (with Anyone Else but Me)" (1942).

The performance of the singer of the group, Julia Rich (Nashville, Tennessee) is also remarkable, via the accuracy and softness of her voice, in the rhythmic swing of "At Last" or "Just Friends". A great sensuality with the romantic accents!
