Hello everyone! 🙂
Yesterday, I did my music presentation at the ‘Newport Nostalgia Music Society’ called ‘Tim’s Glenn Miller Favourites’. It was a successful evening as everyone there enjoyed my presentation. I was nervous and excited about it, but it turned out alright in the end. I’m pleased everyone enjoyed it.
My music presentation featured some of my favourite music performed by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra. It included music from the two Hollywood movies ‘Sun Valley Serenade’ and ‘Orchestra Wives’ starring Glenn Miller in them. There was also some numbers by the Army Air Force Orchestra.
The selection of music that was in my presentation was as follows. First, there was ‘Tuxedo Junction’. Then there was a selection of music from the film ‘Sun Valley Serenade’, including the songs/tunes ‘It Happened in Sun Valley’; ‘I Know Why’; ‘In The Mood’ and ‘Chatanooga Choo Choo’.
There were then the two numbers ‘String of Pearls’ and ‘Pennsylvania 6-500’. Then there was a selection of music from the film ‘Orchestra Wives’, including ‘American Patrol’; ‘Bugle Call Rag’; and ‘I Got A Gal in Kalamazoo’. There was then ‘St Louis Blue March’ before finishing with ‘Moonlight Serenade’.
There were two presentations that night. Mine was the first, the second was by my Dad. I enjoyed his presentation as well as he had a variety of musical numbers compared to mine. My favourite was an audio recording of a ‘Laurel & Hardy’ sketch from ‘County Hospital’ called ‘Hard Boiled Eggs and Nuts’.
I appreciated everybody’s feedback on my ‘Tim’s Glenn Miller Favourites’ presentation. I enjoyed the evening and pleased it went well. Glenn Miller’s music is my favourite, so I’m glad I picked his music for my presentation. I’m grateful to Mick White for helping with the technical side of things.
I’ve been asked to do another presentation for the ‘Newport Nostalgia Music Society’. I’ll have to think of something really good to top up my ‘Glenn Miller’ presentation, won’t I
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
