2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the passing of Alton Glenn Miller, by some measures the most popular American recording artist of all time. With a band capable of playing both “sweet” and “hot,” he also revolutionized military music during World War II, creating the U.S. Army Air Forces Band. The USAF Airmen of Note carry on the tradition, playing his hits with stellar musicianship. Washington Performing Arts Artist In Residence (and host of WAMU’s The Big Broadcast) Murray Horwitz emcees the concert—staged as a radio broadcast—with guest soloists.
